Description

In many industries such as aerospace, construction, and transportation various types of composite materials have found permanent use. In conjunction with the development and utilization of these materials, nondestructive techniques by which these materials are characterized, and their defective properties detected and evaluated must also expand and improve. Microwaves possess great potential for nondestructive evaluation of the properties of these materials. Some of the advantages of using microwaves for this purpose are: (1) ability to penetrate dielectric media (2) use of small sized probes (3) ability to obtain fine resolutions (4) ability to identify various boundaries (5) non-contact, and nondestructive nature of measurements (6) polarization capabilities can determine preferred directions of inhomogeneities and defects (7) valuation of materials properties.
