Abstract: Electromagnetic ultrasonic transducer is the core component of the electromagnetic ultrasonic testing equipment. This paper establishes a three-dimensional model of the electromagnetic ultrasonic transducer used to generate Lamb wave, then by uniform design experiment and finite element analysis, the paper obtains the law between the eddy current density, the conductor width, length of the coil, the lift off distance, and the permanent magnets thickness. The law is verified by the experiment. It provides an overall principle for the optimal design of electromagnetic ultrasonic transducer.


Keywords: EMAT, Lamb wave, Finite element analysis, Optimal design.
