About this book

Introduction

With an emphasis on aircraft materials, this book describes techniques for the material characterization to detect and quantify degradation processes such as corrosion and fatigue. It introduces readers to these techniques based on x-ray, ultrasonic, optical and thermal principles and demonstrates the potential of the techniques for a wide variety of applications concerning aircraft materials, especially aluminum and titanium alloys. The advantages and disadvantages of various techniques are evaluated. An introductory chapter describes the typical degradation mechanisms that must be considered and the microstructure features that have to be detected by NDE methods. Finally, some approaches for making lifetime predictions are discussed. It is suitable as a textbook in special training courses in advanced NDE and aircraft materials characterization.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book describes techniques for the material characterisation to detect and quantify degradation processes such as corrosion and fatigue. Emphasis is made on aircraft materials. … It demonstrates the potential of the techniques for a wide variety of applications concerning aircraft materials, especially aluminum and titanium alloys and polymer coatings. … It is suitable as a textbook in special training courses in advanced NDE and aircraft materials characterisation." (Yvon Renotte, Physicalia Vol. 57 (3), 2005)

"Meyendorf and his fellow editors have collected together a series of descriptions of modern techniques, which could give early detection of crack or corrosion defects. … the book is as a whole an interesting read, and should find itself a useful reference work for anyone working in this area, especially if they have an eye on future developments." (Dr. D.G. Bucknall, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 46 (2), 2005)
