Non-Destructive Testing of Composites

Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) of composites is an important aspect of many sectors, as it provides a means for safety checks of materials and systems both during the manufacturing process and while in use. Many companies, and specifically those in the aeronautics industry, have invested heavily in NDT systems for composite materials, as demonstrated by their patent portfolios.
