NDI/NDT For Composites Structures
This 3-day course provides an overview on non-destructive inspection methods & technologies, for the detection and evaluation of flaws in composite and bonded structures. The applications of mechanical impedance tests, conventional ultrasonic and infrared thermography will be demonstrated and their imitations in the inspection of composite materials will be examined. Trainees will fabricate Carbon, Glass and Aramid fiber panels with built-in flaws which will then be used for testing and characterization of the flaws.
Topics covered in this 3-day course include:
- Composite materials used in modern aircraft structures
- Basic laminate design, essential theory behind the design of fiber laminate structures in Aircraft,
Wind Turbine Blades, Automotive Structures, Marine vessels, etc..
- Damage types and causes in laminate structures from both manufacture and in-service events
- Damage assessment by Mechanical impedance, Ultrasonic and Infra-Red methods
- Image data analysis
Registered Trainees should have prior experience and training in Ultrasonic NDT technologies.
FAA – Federal Aviation Administration acceptable towards Inspection Authorization IA Renewal Training
NOTE: Trainees are encouraged to bring their own Ultrasonic Testing equipment with supporting transducers etc.. An introduction to the Dolphitech System of UT Technologies will be utilized on the course.
