Ultrasonic Inspection of Titanium Airframe Components
The performance demands placed on military aircraft are becoming more and more stringent with the further development of advanced military weapon systems. Continuing demands for higher performance and lighter weight aircraft structures along with the trend for longer life with improved reliability have re-emphasized the need for maximum efficient use of materials. These demands can be met with the use of titanium alloys of higher strength and/or operation at higher operating stresses. However, the tolerance for imperfections in titanium decreases as the strength or operating stresses increase.
