2016 Measurement Science Review  
In this paper, an analytical model is proposed to predict magnetic flux leakage (MFL) signals from the surface defects in ferromagnetic tubes. The analytical expression consists of elliptic integrals of first kind based on the magnetic dipole model. The radial (Bz) component of leakage fields is computed from the cylindrical holes in ferromagnetic tubes. The effectiveness of the model has been studied by analyzing MFL signals as a function of the defect parameters and lift-off. The model

This analytical expression could be used for quick prediction of MFL signals and also input data for defect reconstructions in inverse MFL problem.
