Testing of thin adhesive bonds

Im working on ultrasnic test of impact damaged adhesively bonded composites.I have tried pulse -ecdho method.THis method suffers sensitivity to test the adhesive layer,because the bond line thickness is too thin.Any body who has an idea about what altranative test I have to carry out in order to asses the damage in the adhesive bond line? The thickness of the adhesive bond lie is like 0.3mm.
Thank you

Re: Testing of thin adhesive bonds
Dear Abera,

try through-transmission technique. The portion that has suffered bond-damage will not allow efficient transmission. You need to establish the patterns using known defect standards. I can help you if needed.

Re: Testing of thin adhesive bonds
Dear Abera,

There are many other techniques for testing disbonding in layered structures. For selection of suitable technique for your application following additonal information will be required:

- type of composite you are testing(glass or carbon)
- thickness of the upper composite layer
- type of adhesive

Thanks.

Contact Mr. Chris Kirby of NDT Solutions. You can try thier website for Rapidscan Model, which can help you on this application.
www.ndtsolutions.com

Also you can contact Mr. Neeraj Bhardwaj of Ultran Group ( www.ultran.com), they do it with Non Contact UT (NCU)method.
Both are interesting for Composite applications.

D.Simon Amallraja.
