IR thermography on carbon/epoxy composites

1. Detection of delaminations’ creation and progression by a href=thermal.html>infrared thermography on quasi-isotropic (0°, ± 45°, 90°) carbon-epoxy specimens during fatigue
(tensile-compressive R=-1) tests (10-20 Hz)
So to obtain an increased level of local stresses and to better exploit the possibilities of thermographic technique, in some specimens central holes were produced
(with diameters ranging from 1/3 to 1/2 of the specimen width).

2. Monitoring of damage initiation and progression on quasi-isotropic carbon-epoxy plates impacted with different energies from 12 to 30 Joules, following compression tests through infrared thermography.
