Introduction to Non-Destructive Testing of Composite Materials

May 29, 2024 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT

Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is commonly used to assess the quality and current condition of composite materials. It is used to provide insight into the presence of defects and/or the extent of damage without destroying the part, thereby allowing it to go back into service if appropriate. Many parts go through NDT before being put into service as part of QA procedures.

This webinar delves into the fundamentals of non-destructive testing (NDT) for composites, with an emphasis on Infrared Thermography, Ultrasound Testing, and Computed Tomography. It will introduce the main manufacturing defects and lifetime discontinuities, discussing how to address these with the aforementioned NDT methods. The session will illustrate the practical applications and real-world effectiveness of these NDT methods in composite materials.
