Area of research

Row-column Addressed Array Imaging and Laser Ultrasonic Testing of Composite Materials

Research summary

This project focusses on Non-destructive Evaluation (NDE) of composite materials. There are two main strands to this project, both of which are designed to improve current capabilities in, or provide new capabilities to, the area of NDE of composites for the defence air domain. The first provides a scientific basis for the use of, and improvements to, Row-column Addressed (RCA) arrays, also called crossed-electrode transducer arrays, like DolphiCam (DolphiTech, Raufoss, Norway). The second is to design and test a cost-effective, small-footprint in-service Laser Ultrasonic Testing (LUT) system for the inspection of Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) on defence air platforms ...
