When bulk pieces of conductors are subjected to changing magnetic flux induced currents are produced in them.the flow patterns of induced currets resemle the swirling eddies in water. this effect was dicovered by Foucault and these currents are called eddy currents

Foucault observed that when a mass of metal moves in a magnetic field or when the magnetic field through a (remember) stationary mass of metal is altered, induced current thus is produced in the metal. This induced current flows in the metal in the form of closed loops resembling ‘eddies’ or whirl pool.

Eddy currents  are loops of electrical current induced within conductors by a changing magnetic field in the conductor due to Faraday's law of induction. Eddy currents flow in closed loops within conductors, in planes perpendicular to the magnetic field.

If a solid piece of metal is placed in a changing magnetic field then due to electromagnetic induction circulating currents are induced in it. These currents are called as eddy currents.
