Description

A brief summary of the progress of the research in the internal structural characterization of metal matrix (MMC) and ceramic matrix (CMC) composite materials is presented here. These materials show great potential for improving turbine engine performance by enabling operation at higher temperatures and stresses than now possible [1]. However, the application of these materials requires advances in NDE capability in order to characterize material parameters that are likely to affect performance. Several ultrasonic methods are being developed to characterize the internal structure of these anisotropic, inhomogeneous materials.
