Innovative quality inspection methods for CFRP primary structural parts

Project description

Non destructive inspection for sound composites

The outstanding properties of composite materials have led many industries to incorporate them into their product designs at an accelerating pace. For example, more than 50 % of the aircraft primary structures are currently composed of composites. Compact shape and high thickness are key aspects of the primary structure design. The EU-funded project SonicScan is developing a novel non-destructive ultrasonic testing method for assessing quality of primary structures. Their innovation lies in the use of advanced phased array ultrasonic technology coupled with a robotic handling system. The new system will greatly simplify the inspection process and improve the quality of composite parts.
