Paper Abstract

The laser ultrasonic method for nondestructive quantitative local evaluation of graphite-epoxy composites porosity is developed with only one surface of a sample or a product is available. The excitation and the registration of ultrasonic transients is carried out with the specially designed opto-acoustic transducer, which allows one to obtain both a temporal profile and a frequency spectrum of backscattered opto-acoustic signals. The empirical dependence of the volume content of pores (porosity) of a composite vs. the noise component power of a backscattered transient is obtained in the range of porosity of (0÷0,15). The experimental results prove the possibility to employ the laser opto-acoustic method for porosity evaluation of composite materials and products both during manufacturing and operation.
