Validation and transfer of NDI techniques for corrosion quantification and small crack/disbond detection

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A coordinated program in inspection system research was started at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Technical Center in 1990 as part the National Aging Aircraft Research Program. The primary objectives of the Inspection Systems Research Initiative are to act in concert with other government agencies and private industry to develop improved inspection techniques to address specific airframe and engine inspection problems and to evaluate and validate existing and emerging inspection systems. Advanced conventional technologies, emerging technologies, or combinations of technologies are investigated for their ability to accurately and reliably detect cracks, disbonds, corrosion, and other damage.
