Description

The proportion of composite parts used in new Air Force aircraft is increasing significantly with each airplane that is designed [1]. In addition, composite parts are also being used for critical applications, where the loss of the part could cause the loss of the plane. These parts are susceptible to delaminations, disbonds, and impact damage. As part of its mission to overhaul aircraft, the Sacramento Air Logistics Center needs to be able to efficiently validate the integrity of composite aircraft parts.
