Paper Abstract

Thermographic NDT, which is a technique in NDT based on the surface temperature distribution in heated solids, was applied for the inspection of locally damaged CFRP plate samples under the lateral contact loading followed by cyclic bending. A singular method and an insulation method were examined. The singular method, in which a heat concentration at flaw tips was detected under resistive heating by electric current, was found to be sensitive to the failure, fracture or break in carbon fibers. On the other hand, the insulation method, in which the perturbation in the surface temperature distribution was detected under stream heating by hot air, was found to be successfully applicable to the inspection of the subsurface delamination damage in CFRP. The detected damages by the thermographic NDT were compared with those observed by SAM (scanning acoustic microscope).
