Paper Abstract

Pulsed infrared thermographic inspection has proven to be a fast, accurate, reliable and cost effective NDE alternative to traditional ultrasonic NDE of commercial aircraft structures. Accurate damage assessment and verification of proper repair is of utmost importance to the commercial aircraft operator today. Pulsed infrared thermographic inspection can be utilized on a wide variety of aircraft structures with a high degree of accuracy. Acoustical structures that previously could not be scanned with traditional ultrasonic methods can be evaluated using pulsed infrared thermographic inspection.
