Ultrasonic Attenuation Results of Thermoplastic Resin Composites Undergoing Thermal and Fatigue Loading

  • Eric I. Madaras

Abstract

Before airframe manufacturers introduce new materials into aeronautic structures, they require that these materials must be fully characterized for the environment they will be used in. For high speed aircraft, this would include the material’s response to thermal and fatigue loading representative of high numbers of flight cycles. At the same time that these materials are undergoing the necessary mechanical testing, it is prudent to also investigate nondestructive evaluation (NDE) methods that can be used in the field to assess the condition of these new materials simultaneously with their mechanical evaluation.
