Abstract:

The objective of this work is to address this need of knowing accurate damage location and size by developing a simple system that will allow for damage location to be accurately identified and then automatically transferred to a CAD model of a plane. This replaces a current process that consists of manually capturing damage location on a piece of clear Mylar, taking the Mylar to a workstation and then manually transferring the location to a CAD model. This is a time-consuming error prone process. Automating this process will allow us to achieve our goals of reducing the cost and time and improving the quality of repairs to composite structures and their coatings. In our Phase I we demonstrate the feasibility of this idea. The objective of the Phase II is to turn this technology into a practical solution that will seamlessly fit into existing maintenance processes.
