Detection and location of underground cables using magnetic field measurements
Goddard, K.F., Wang, P., Lewin, P.L. and Swingler, S.G. (2012) Detection and location of underground cables using magnetic field measurements. Measurement Science and Technology, 23, (5) (doi:10.1088/0957-0233/23/5/055002).
This paper describes an experimental study into the detection and location of underground cables using magnetic field measurements. The basic theory behind the technique is discussed. A method of locating and classifying buried cables using measurements of their magnetic field is then introduced and explained. Experimental results are presented, which show that this system can give useful results in uncluttered locations. Some options for extending the system so that it can be used in cluttered locations, and for integrating the system into multi-sensor device, are discussed briefly.
