Damage propagation in composite materials

nikon metrology industry research composite materialsIdentifying failure mechanisms in composites is important because damage often remains largely invisible externally until late in the testing process.

Research using X-ray and CT technology help gain a better understanding of the failure mechanisms and develop mathematical formulae describing the degrading performance characteristics. Research aims at developing and exploiting in-situ rigs that allow multi-mode stressing to be applied on composite samples – a keen interest of international aerospace companies.
