The paper gives the results of studying the developed eddy current transducer of magnetic anisotropy with working diameter of 17 mm. Transducer sensitivity to tensile and compressive stresses in ferromagnetic steels is shown. It particular, shown is the shape of signal travel time curves at working frequencies of 5.0; 20.0; and 50.0 kHz, due to tensile and compressive stresses, induced during realization of loading-unloading cycle by four-point bend schematic. Opposite direction of travel time curves for tensile and compressive stresses from the balancing point is demonstrated that allows determination of the nature of stresses in the direction of travel time curves in a complex plane, or by the output signal sign after amplitude-phase transformation. Changes in the amplitude of eddy current transducer signal during realization of loading-unloading cycle were studied. Existence of magneto-elastic hysteresis for both the kinds of loading is shown. 24 Reference, 4 Figures.
