Crack detection is one of the most important issues in large component such as nuclear power plant. A NDT method using electromagnetic waves has strong possibility for crack detection in large pipes. In this study, TM01-mode of electromagnetic wave is used for detecting a circumferential crack and time of flight (TOF) of the electromagnetic wave in straight pipe with crack is evaluated to determine the crack location.
