Paper Abstract

In this paper, eddy current pulsed thermography in transmission mode was used to detect the damages caused by low-velocity impacts in carbon fiber-reinforced polymer and basalt-carbon hybrid fiber-reinforced polymer laminates. In particular, different hybrid structures including intercalated stacking and sandwich-like structures were used. The impact energy of 12.5 was used for the evaluation of the impact damage level. Ultrasonic phased-array C-scan was performed for comparative purposes. In addition, the advantages and disadvantages of the two structures were identified and discussed.
