Description

The integration of composites into critical components of aerospace structures requires that their integrity can be nondestructively evaluated. Conventional ultrasonic techniques are sufficient for gross flaw detection but nondestructively measuring matrix consolidation, fiber matrix adhesion and fiber breakage calls for the development of new techniques. Presented here is an approach which will aid in the understanding of the interaction of ultrasonic waves with composite materials.
