The NDT method using electromagnetic waves has availability for crack detection in large pipes or structures in nuclear power plants. The purpose of this study is then, to develop a new method to determine the crack size and location with high speed and accuracy. Through this study, it has been shown that the transmitted wave carries a lot of information on crack depth and the obtained signals of reflected wave below the cut-off frequency depend on the crack position. Experimental results indicate that there exists attractive possibility in the new NDT method.
