A method for identification of a semi-elliptical crack existing on the back surface of the material by means of direct-current electrical potential difference method of multiple-point measurement type was proposed. The geometry of the crack was given by the two-dimensional location of the crack center, the surface and inward angles of the crack, and the length and depth of the crack. The identification was carried out based on the distribution of potential difference on the surface. The related experiments were carried out using six metal plates with various semi-elliptical cracks made on the back surface by electric discharge machining. The geometry of the crack was successfully identified by the proposed method and the results were discussed.
