Description

The aging of aircraft and the integrity of lapjoints and doublers is a growing concern. With the increasing average age of the commercial aircraft fleet, there exists an increased need for the development of new NDE techniques for the detection of critical flaws in aircraft airframes. The current techniques being either too time consuming or unreliable are a primary reason for a requirement of major mandatory modification to the existing fleet. Improved NDE techniques offer the possibility for increased safety and reliability at reduced costs.
