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

Transmission of bulk ultrasonic waves through materials immersed in water is a well appropriated method to measure the stiffness matrix of anisotropic composite materials. This matrix can be deduced from velocities measurements by simple [1,2,3] or double transmission [4,5] or from amplitudes of double reflected bulk waves [4]. All these methods are working very well for unidirectional composites when transverse isotropy is assumed and the stiffness matrix has only five independent elastic constants.
