Description

In recent years, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) technology has been successfully utilized in a number of aerospace NDE applications. It is currently being investigated as an cure monitoring technique for advanced composites fabrication processes. Because of the sensitivity of NMR to hydrogen motion, it is very sensitive to changes in resin viscosity due to elevated temperatures. However, NMR magnets have traditionally been large and heavy in order to achieve the magnetic field strength and homogeneity necessary for acceptable signal-to-noise ratio.
