A Computerized Ultrasonic Scanning Bridge for Defect Imaging: Composite Materials [chapter]

Donald Boyd, William McDonald, Andrew Simmons
1983 Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation  
A computerized ultrasonic scanning bridge has been developed for the scanning and imaging of defects in structures. The raster scaning pattern can be implemented with any pair of the six available axes. The digitized ultrasonic signal can be imaged using a Peritek Graphic system. Details of the ultrasonic scanning bridge and imaging system will be reviewed. Examples of the evaluation of a graphite epoxy component will be reviewed. The scanning of the composite part requires the use of the two
