The carbon fiber reinforced composite has been widely used in many fields of the aviation industry due to the good resistance to fatigue damage, impact resistance, and easy processing. Firstly, the pulse heat conduction model of the carbon fiber reinforced composite is established, and the simulation experiment is completed based on the customized specimen with the defects. The influences of the thermal excitation power and pulse width on the defect detection effect are analyzed and obtained.

It may provide the theoretical basis and empirical guidance for the defect detection of the composite materials.
