A Theoretical Model for Magnetic Field Mapping as a Means of Broken Fiber Detection in Graphite Epoxy Composites

  • William T. Yost
Part of the Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation book series


Composite materials are gaining popularity in the aerospace industry because of their light weight and high strength, and the possibility to fabricate pieces to meet specific design needs. With the anticipated increase in usage, including the use in critical parts, it is essential to develop methods and techniques to determine the soundness of a structure fabricated from these materials.
