Description

Adhesive joining of materials has found widespread use in industry because of the simplicity and versatility of the process. However, adhesive applications in critical structural joints are still limited by the absence of reliable, rapid industrial NDE methods. Weak bonds remain hidden from conventional inspection methods capable of detecting only gross defects such as voids and open delamination. Weak bonds can exhibit substantially reduced strength without apparent defects.
