Description

With an ever increasing emphasis on extending the life of both military and commercial aircraft, it is critical to have nondestructive evaluation (NDE) methods capable of detecting corrosion in its earliest stages of formation. The consequences of corrosion left undetected are material thinning and a subsequent reduction in strength. Conventional NDE methods such as ultrasonics, eddy current and radiography are capable of detecting the resultant exfoliation caused by corrosion; however, some material loss must occur before reliable detection can be made using the referenced methods.
