Abstract:

This report results from a contract tasking University of Strathclyde as follows The contractor will investigate dielectric non-destructive inspection of adhesive bonds and bonded structures in the following areas 1 to explore the potential of dielectric measurements for the study of boron fiberaluminum adhesive bonded structures used for in-situ repairs of aircraft 2 to evaluate the potential of the dielectric technique to the study of carbon fiber compositealuminum adhesive bonded structures currently used to repair damage in aircraft 3 to explore the potential of the method by examination of real airframe structures 4 to characterize film adhesives and the state of cure in adhesive materials.
