Composite Testing

The use of composites in nearly all industry sectors is growing as a result of the excellent strength to weight ratio.  Modern aerospace, marine and wind energy structures are heavily reliant on composite materials, but by their very nature, their inhomogeneity makes them a challenge for inspection.  With a large variation of material types, lay-up and the use of sandwich core and variations in the quality of manufacturing, often conventional ultrasonic inspection can struggle to produce a consistent result.
