Paper Abstract

Fatigue cracking and plastic deformation occur in both new and aging aircraft engines, requiring periodic manual inspection with ultrasonic and eddy current probes. Often cracking occurs in inaccessible areas that require engine disassembly just to perform the inspection. In many cases, the cost of assembling and reassembling the engine far exceeds the cost of inspection and can also induce new damage.
