Description

This paper provides a brief summary of one aspect of a CEC project funded under the Brite-Euram programme. The aim of the project was to investigate the possibility of finding a non-destructive technique based on ultrasonic measurements to detect and characterize damage in aluminum matrix particle-reinforced composites which may negatively influence their fitness for use. There was an emphasis on detecting fatigue -induced damage prior to crack formation.
