  1. 1. Designation: A 340 – 03a Standard Terminology of Symbols and Definitions Relating to Magnetic Testing1 This standard is issued under the fixed designation A 340; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A superscript epsilon (e) indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. INTRODUCTION In preparing this glossary of terms, an attempt has been made to avoid, where possible, vector analysis and differential equations so as to make the definitions more intelligible to the average worker in the field of magnetic testing. In some cases, rigorous treatment has been sacrificed to secure simplicity, but it is believed that none of the definitions will prove to be misleading. It is the intent of this glossary to be consistent in the use of symbols and units with those found in ANSI/IEEE 260-1978 and USA Standard Y 10.5-1968.
