This paper proposes a fast and effective method for reconstructing arbitrary defect profiles in steel plates from magnetic flux leakage (MFL) measurements widely used in nondestructive testing (NDT) of oil storage tanks and pipelines. The inverse reconstruction problem is formulated based on a nonlinear forward model using the finite element method (FEM) and is implemented in 2-D. A Gauss-Newton optimization is applied to reconstruct the defect geometry, using efficiently calculated Jacobian information directly derived from the FEM system matrix.
