Description

Composite materials are complex structures widely utilized in modern industry. Numerous nondestructive testing techniques are used to examine these composites for manufacturing flaws, including ultrasonic testing. Normally the reinforcing fibers in a composite material are aligned in a prescribed fashion, from a simple unidirectional composite to a complex composite laminate lay-up. Defects caused by manufacturing or in-service use can result in buckling or warping of the fibers. This is an important concern when dealing with thick composites.
