Introduction to Non-Destructive Testing of Composite Materials


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 ... Read more

Introduction to Repair of Composite Structures


Many composite structures encounter damage, which needs to be identified and assessed, and a decision to repair made. Repair may be advantageous in terms of cost and/or faster return to service. It may also be a more sustainable option versus replacement. This webinar is an introduction to repair of composite structures. It will start with ... Read more

Viscoelasticity and Composite Materials


Polymer matrix composites exhibit viscoelastic behaviour that may affect the long-term performance of the composite structure. Viscoelastic materials display energy dissipation and a memory effect meaning that past mechanical and thermal loads will alter the material. The determination of the material properties and the prediction of their long-term response requires a range of experimental, computational, ... Read more
