Abstract

One of the important requirements for advanced composite materials is satisfaction of structure stiffness to the levels preset by the design. Such a requirement underlines the importance of nondestructive evaluation as a quality control tool to establish equivalence of the elastic properties of a manufactured composite to that of the designed composite. Several recent papers have been devoted to development of such nondestructive techniques, mainly based on application of bulk ultrasonic waves [1–5] and Lamb waves [6–8].
