Description

Impact damage often may produce little visible surface damage, yet extensive subsurface delaminations, greatly reducing the load carrying capacity of the composite part [1]. For large composite structures typical of aerospace applications, thermal NDE techniques have been shown to provide quantitative information regarding the area and depth of hidden damage in composite samples [2] [3]. For a quantitative assessment of damage, where a noncontacting method capable of imaging large areas at a time is required, thermal techniques have some advantages.
