Abstract: Non-destructive testing enables a way to identify and evaluate the surface as well as sub-surface defects of materials, without altering the structural integrity. This paper concentrates the experimental demonstration on few of the non-destructive techniques. Based on the test results the nature & properties of the defects are discussed in comparison with base material. The glass/epoxy laminates are prepared in the form of pipes & laminates in which artificial defects are introduced by inserts & milled holes. By testing these defective specimens through various methods like ultrasonic testing, radiography testing, thermography testing the defects are identified and hence the properties of the defects are discussed.
Keyword: Non-Destructive testing, Glass-Epoxy laminates, Thermography, Radiography, Ultrasonic testing.
Scope of the Article: Data Mining Methods, Techniques, and Tools.
