NDT OF the trimmed CFRP


Hi,

I trimmed CFRP with CNC machine, There is no pull-out fiber. I wanna check edge delamination. I checked immersion ultrasound and shearography tests. There is no sign of delamination, but in immersion ultrasound, I didn't have speed of sound in fiber composite and also I didn't have any idea about the frequency test. Does have someone any idea that how can we check edge delamination and what is the best way to do that. Does have someone any experience with immersion ultrasound to check CFRP.

Thank you in advance
Harry

Harry
A few points on this
Velocity in CFRP is usually around 2800-3000 m/s
You should not use imersion for this -water will seep into any
Edge delaminations and make them invisible.

Dry the part out and use pulse echo UT being careful to keep the
Edges dry. A standard delay line probe along the edges should be ok.
Or use phased array if you want images.
Our array wheel probe is pretty good, but you can doit with anything really

Another approach is air-coupled UT -you will need to mask the edges though as other wise you will get
' bleed around' - I suspect this may be more of an investment than is justified however.

Good luck

Joe

a 5Mhz delay line will do the job for finding out delams in the edges.Also you may try a very easy technique with a Bondmaster which is really an easy job. Most of the aircraft industries uses this equipment for checking Honeycomb, CFRP etc.

Dear Harry,

Infrared thermography (IRT) is a good method to check the delamination in the CFRP.
However, checking the edge we don't have an experience with this.
If possible we can do some tests for you.

Regards,
Adel

it appears that if your asking about immersion testing your no worried about moisture, so why not use Dye check?
