cracks inside Al/CFRP assembly

Could anyone suggest me a way to control an assembly of Al(17mm)+CFRP(18mm)+Al(45mm)+CFRP(33mm)+Al(37mm)in what regards cracks at the third layer?
And with what accuracy?
Thanks in advance.

Re: cracks inside Al/CFRP assembly
Hi,
AE may be of help here, but I would need more details (actual scope of testing, size/geometry of your component/part,...) to estimate if AE would really do the expected job.
Please send the details + your address to my email that I can provide further information.
regards
Jens

FMC/TFM

Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
...
oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field

NEW! The PragmaPro Instrument Platform

The PragmaPro is based on a modular cartridge technology and supports various NDT instrument modal
...
ities such as UT, PAUT, ECT and many more. This new platform is based on a machined, powder-coated aluminum frame for shock-proofness, best sealing qualities and maximum heat dissipation. This is practical to extend the outdoor temperature range and/or to extend the power injected in the transducers. The PragmaPro is aiming at a very wide range of applications, such as weld scanning, corrosion mapping and composite testing.
