|This Month's Introduction|
Most of this month's issue focuses on the full-text papers of the ECNDT
'98 Aerospace Session.
One such article is "Characterization of Defects in Composite Materials Using Rapidly Acquired Leaky Lamb Wave Dispersion Data, " co-authored by Y. Bar-Cohen et. al. Jet Propulsion Lab. In conjunction with this article, we are pleased to introduce Dr. Yoseph Bar-Cohen, who will serve as the coordinator for the questions and comments on NDE of Aircraft Structures for the September 1998 Forum of NDT.net. He is now our Virtual Session Chairman.
This Month's Articles
Experience has shown, that the high safety
requirements in aircraft manufacturing and operation can be guaranteed only by integrated solutions.
This requires besides a careful analysis of the manufacturing process and the possibly deriving flaws
also detailed knowledge about the behaviour of the flaws under the usual and unusual stress when the
aircraft is in operation and also knowledge about the resulting in service inspections. Only with NDT
methods giving highly reproducible test results this concept can be guaranteed. It is necessary to have
detailed inspection procedures with qualified calibration blocks and adequate interpretation rules for
the indications as well as highly trained inspection personal familiar with the specific aeronautic
materials and designs. Only this ensures the definition of the term 'secure detectable flaw size' within
the tension field of economy and safety. (Session Chairman:
Gustav Tober, Daimler Benz, Aerospace Airbus)
