Features of induction heating of steel samples with a pregrown crack are studied. The possibility of healing surface cracks at certain modes of high-frequency heating is shown by experiments. A numerical model for calculating the temperature field is proposed. The model makes it possible to select the optimum mode of heating for eliminating surface-layer defects.
