Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Quantitative evaluation of small cracks in stainless steel under water, which simulated the environment of unclear reactor, by using microwave, was demonstrated. The crack depth was evaluated by means of the microwave dual frequency technique, and the crack closure stress was estimated based on the compliance technique.
