Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation
Center for Nondestructive Evaluation

Begun in 1973, the Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation (QNDE) is the premier international NDE meeting designed to provide an interface between research and early engineering through the presentation of current ideas and results focused on facilitating a rapid transfer to engineering development.

This site provides free, public access to papers presented at the annual QNDE conference between 1983 and 1999, and abstracts for papers presented at the conference since 2001.

Abstract

Composite materials are nowadays involved in various designs [1] in areas like aeronautics, road, rail or sea transportation, and chemical industries, among other. Using these material brings a number of advantages: the lowering of overall mass, the increase in the applied mechanical loads before breakdown occurs, the resistance to contamination by chemical agents, the ease of material forming using molding techniques, and the matchability of the material to the particular mechanical function required for a given part in a structure. Among composite materials, the carbon-epoxy ones are costly but also very efficient. They find important applications in aeronautics and we will focus our attention here to them.
