Abstract:

The available tools to detect skin to core disbonds are both difficult to use and require extensive training. Complex waveforms must often be interpreted. We are proposing a small, portable, low cost ultrasound camera for in-service inspection of honeycomb rotor blades for skin to core disbonds. The basis of our technique is a two dimensional imaging array which generates real time C-scan images of defects in materials. The key advantage of this system is the simplicity of the technique. Therefore, a non-specialized inspector can easily be trained to find small defects in these structures.
