In this paper we propose an original analytical modeling applied to electromagnetic (EM) systems, in the aim of performing an inversion scheme. The purpose consists in imaging cracks through eddy current sensors, the image being constituted by an estimation of the conductivity of the piece of metal under test, voxel by voxel. There are plenty of industrial applications in Non Destructive Evaluations for monitoring of cracks in structures: Aeronautics, Metallurgy, ships building and so on. For modeling, a relatively new developed technique, called ‘Distributed Points Source Method’ (DPSM) has been used. This original modeling was invented at Ecole Normale Superieure of Cachan in 2000, and since developed and patented in many kind of applications (Ultrasonics, Electrostatics…).
