New test results according US or AE on sandwich structures

Dear All

I am searching for informations about the State-of-the-art of Ultrasonic and Acoustic inspections techniques specially on thick sandwich panels (GFRP/CFRP skins and Balsa/PVC cores). Anyone aware of any new realeased reports, new results or new informations of any kind that is related to this subject the last two-three years?
Thanking you in anticipation I will look forward to hear from you soon.

Best regards

Dear Thomas,
My company markets the Quasar International Resonant Inspection equipment, manufactured in USA.
This is a very high tech version of acoustic testing, capable of extending to the Megahertz range of frequencies, and with very powerful compensation algorithms to compensate for many variables that limit the acoustic technique.
Contact me on Godfrey@hands-ndt.co.uk, or look at our web site www.hands-ndt.co.uk or that or Quasar www.quasarintl.com
