Microwave and guided wave (GW) nondestructive evaluation (NDE) techniques are capable of detecting corrosion damage, cracks, and other defect types in inaccessible areas. This article describes the operation principles of the techniques and provides information on hidden corrosion detection and the applications of microwave NDE devices and GW ultrasonic NDE devices.
