A transfer function is presented for calculating magnetic field and flux density inside a test material as a result of surface measurement. By considering flux leakage, we introduce a parameter η, called the leakage coefficient, which can be experimentally determined. It is introduced into the equations to make the transfer function more practical. The distribution of field inside a test material is then discussed in accordance with a surfacemagnetic charge model.

By analogy with electrostatic field, a simple analytic model is presented on the distribution of magnetic field inside a test material as a result of surface inspection with a magnetic probe. According to this model, the penetration depth of the magnetic field is defined and the permeability of the material at different depths is calculated. Finally, the magnetic flux inside the inspection head when placed on samples of different thicknesses is calculated and compared with experimental results.
