Abstract
THE TREND CONTINUES TOWARDS APPLYING ADVANCED COMPOSITE MATERIALS TO THE HIGH PERFORMANCE STRUCTURES ASSOCIATED WITH AEROSPACE. STRUCTURES FABRICATED FROM CARBON-CARBON AND FILAMENT WOUND COMPOSITES ARE PARTICULAR EXAMPLES. TO FULLY EXPLOIT THE PROMISE OF THESE ADVANCED STRUCTURES, NOVEL NDE TECHNIQUES ARE NEEDED FOR CHARACTERIZATION. DUAL-ENERGY LAMINOGRAPHY SPECIFICALLY ADDRESSES THE CHEMICAL, DIMENSIONAL, AND MATERIAL PROPERTIES OF THIN-WALLED, POROUS STRUCTURES. PHASE I WILL COMPUTATIONALLY AND EXPERIMENTALLY ASSESS AND DERIVE A LAMINOGRAPHIC NDE SYSTEM DESIGN WHICH SATISFIES THE CARBON-CARBON AND FILAMENT WOUND COMPOSITE STRUCTURE APPLICATION.
