Here’s How Ultrasonic Inspection can Benefit Composite Structures

Sectors such as aviation and aerospace heavily rely on composites. In fact, it’s crucial for these sectors that composite components and structures be evaluated and tested in order to continue operating at the very highest levels of safety, quality, performance and compliance. This is where ultrasonic inspection becomes of value.

Composites are manufactured using two or more materials, which have different chemical or physical properties, so as to maximise their useful properties while also minimising any weaknesses. While the component materials won’t lose any of their individuality, they instead work together to offer incredible benefits of high strength, low weight and increased durability.

Ultrasonic inspection is a form of non-destructive testing technology, and is employed in the testing of composite components and structures. This is because this form of testing delivers very accurate results, by sizing and locating cracks, flaws and voids, as well as many other defects.

Ultrasonic Inspection Doesn’t Damage the Component

Another benefit of this type of testing is that it won’t destroy the component, hence its reputation as a leading non-destructive testing procedure. You can easily determine whether the component is still sound and capable of delivering years of dependable service, or not.
