Abstract
THE STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY OF GRAPHITE-EPOXY COMPOSITES CAN BE VALIDATED BY MEASUREMENT OF EDDY-CURRENTS INDUCED IN ELECTRICALLY CONDUCTING FIBERS. EDDY-CURRENTS ARE DIMISHED IN DAMAGE REGIONS OF A COMPOSITE STRUCTURE BECAUSE RUPUTRED FIBERS DO NOT PROVIDE AN ELECTRICALLY CONDUCTING PATH. THE PROGRAM PROPOSED HEREIN SEEKS SOLUTIONS TO PRACTICAL PROBLEMS AND OBSTACLES TO THE REALIZATION OF A PRACTICAL INSTRUMENT FOR INSPECTION IN THE FIELDS.
