In consideration of difficulty in directly using the multisensor detecting feature information for the defect identification, an improved multisensor recognition algorithm based on data-fusion technology for subsurface defect depth evaluation is proposed. At first, two common nondestructive testing technologies such as ultrasonic testing (UT) and eddy current testing (ECT) are introduced; then, a fusion method based on the error distribution characteristics of two kinds of detection methods is
