1.Aims & Scope
Robust and reliable non-destructive testing (NDT) of composite materials and structures is essential to reduce safety concerns and maintenance costs. To date, there have been several NDT techniques with a focus on acoustic emission, optical methods, ultrasonic waves, infrared thermography or terahertz. These individual techniques, while useful, cannot provide a
This Special Collection aims to provide a forum for researchers, scientists, and engineers to showcase their achievements in NDT of composite materials and structures, and identify critical challenges for future investigation. We welcome submissions describing the most recent advances in NDT techniques, multiscale inspection and imaging methods, as well as their novel applications to composite materials and structures. Original research articles on advanced manufacturing and characterization of composite materials and structures are also welcome.
Potential topics for submissions include but are not limited to:
- Process and development of NDT techniques (acoustic, electrical, infrared, optical, terahertz, ultrasonic, X-ray or neutron beams)
- Multiscale (micro-, meso- and/or macro-scale) inspection and imaging methods
- Advanced manufacturing and characterization of composites
- Multiscale defect and damage detection
- Integrity detection and safety assurance
