The NDT method using electromagnetic waves has the possibility to detect widely and quickly inner surface crack existing in large pipes. The purpose of this study is then to demonstrate validity of the method to detect the thin crack introduced by plasma discharge fabrication. Through this study, it has been shown that both reflected and transmitted waves carry a lot of information on existence of the crack. Experimental results indicate that there exists attractive possibility in this new NDT method.
