This paper deals with an adaptive mesh refinement method applied to 3D eddy current non-destructive testing computations by finite element method. The principle of Ligurian is used as error estimator and applied in a general computation processing loop. This work takes place within the framework of the development of a non-destructive computer-aided numerical simulation environment. It has been applied to the TEAM Workshop Problem 15.
