how to create artificial flaws in composite plates

I would like to know how to create artificial flaws in composite plates?

Thank you

Is this during or after plate manufacture?

It's before plate manufacture.

For example, to create an inclusion, I put a teflon wafer betwenn 2 plies before RTM process.

After creating defects, I would like to control my plates by ultrasonic control.

After RTM process is possible to create a impact damage at various load or a little spotface by milling.
Before RTM to create delamination by various type of plastic material sheet ( different attenuation during UT inspection) not only PTFE.

In simulating damage in a composite structure, the first things to ask is what kinds of defects are being sought and what methods of detection am I contemplating.

For example, low frequency eddy current and x-ray might be able to find “disbonds” simulated with flat bottomed holes, yet be useless in finding real disbonds in metallic structures. Likewise, thermography, and again radiography, might be able image Teflon inserts, yet not be as successful in real applications.

Conversely, sometimes the more basic (ruthless) approach is the best approach. A thin, sharp blade shoved into the edge of a glue line of a bonded structure might create the perfect disbond simulation, while a properly applied ball-peen hammer might produce a great “simulation” of in-service impact damage.
