The purpose of this paper is to introduce to the nondestructive testing (NDT) engineer examples of the possible uses of magnetometer NDT techniques in his work. A brief review is made of how a typical magnetometer works. It is pointed out that magnetometer NDT applications fall into three general categories: (1) measurement of residual fields; (2) thickness measurement applications, and (3) measurement of magnetic leakage fields. Examples of these applications are presented to show that the magnetometer or similar instrumentation has a definite use and need in nondestructive testing. All of the techniques illustrated have been developed and used in industry.
