Description

Large areas of composite primary structure are now to be found both on civil and military aircraft throughout the world and the inspection of these structures contributes significantly to overall operating costs. Therefore methods to reduce the inspection time, whilst maintaining an acceptable minimum defect detection capability, are required in order to optimize the potential cost saving benefits offered by using that carbon fiber composite material.
