DETECT-IV: Model-supported development of non-destructive testing (NDT) methods for defect detection in composite parts with industrial complexity and volume production.

In this SBO project, the general goal is to develop novel NDT techniques that can detect defects in composite parts with industrial complexity, and this within a limited inspection time so that inspection of composite components in volume production becomes feasible. Corresponding numerical models will be developed to support the development of the NDT techniques and to interpret the NDT data. Three classes of NDT techniques are investigated: (i) high frequency vibration techniques (Local Defect Resonance), (ii) vibro-acoustic methods and (iii) thermal imaging methods.
