This paper reports fast crack profile reconstruction methods using transient slices and spectral components of pulsed eddy current (PEC) signals after a review of the state-of-the-art and current challenges. These methods provide initial approximate profiles for crack shape reconstruction, and have potential to reduce the computing time. Experimental samples, results, and reconstructions have been presented and discussed. Comparative studies of different profile reconstructions using different PEC signals such as amplitude, phase, real and imaginary values of spectral components, transient slices, have also been conducted using reconstruction Mean Square Errors (MSE). The results show that the profiles estimation using the imaginary values of spectral components is more stable and accurate than the others. (C) 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
