Simulation and Non-Destructive Evaluation
This book provides an overview both of standard and novel methods for Non-Destructive damage detection, their applicability to many fiber composites, from aerospace to automotive and construction materials, and finally appropriate damage simulation techniques. The reader finds a collection of 24 review articles from 45 authors who worked together in a Collaborative Research Center (SFB381) on these topics. The first part deals with Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) Methods, their basic principles and applicability for damage detection, monitoring and identification of generic failure mechanisms. After addressing the simulation of NDE signals for their quantitative interpretation, the second part deals with the simulation of various damage situations occurring in fiber composite materials up to structural failure.
Another collection of the Collaborative Research Center (SFB381) is available as Online-Proceedings here.
