Description

Structural parts made from metal matrix composites are expected to sustain high levels of mechanical and thermal loadings. In most cases these loadings have a cyclic nature. They lead to the development of fatigue damage. It is important to have nondestructive testing tools which would allow one to detect and quantify the damage in these materials at early stages of its development and predict the remaining fatigue life.
