Description

A computerized ultrasonic scanning bridge has been developed for the scanning and imaging of defects in structures. The raster scaning pattern can be implemented with any pair of the six available axes. The digitized ultrasonic signal can be imaged using a Peritek Graphic system. Details of the ultrasonic scanning bridge and imaging system will be reviewed.

Examples of the evaluation of a graphite epoxy component will be reviewed. The scanning of the composite part requires the use of the two angulation axis for the raster scanning. The correlation of the ultrasonic inspection with failure pressure of the graphite epoxy component will be presented.
