Paper Title:
Influence of Ultrasonic Shear Wave on Defect Angles of Stacking Using CFRP Composite Laminates
  Abstract

Because the layup of composite laminates influences there properties, the strength of composites depends on layup sequence of CFRP laminates. It is very important to detect ply error before the laminate is cured for both manual procedure and fiber placement procedure. An ultrasonic technique would be very beneficial, which could be used to test the part after and before curing laminates and requires less time than the optical test. Scanners were set out for different measurement modalities for acquiring ultrasonic signals as a function of in-plane azimuthal angle. The first motorized scanner was utilized for making transmission measurements using a pair of normal-incidence shear wave transducers. A scanner was built for the acousto-ultrasonic configuration using contact transducers. And a ply-by-ply vector decomposition model has been utilized for evaluating layup errors in composite laminates fabricated from unidirectional plies. We have compared the test results with model data. It is found that high probability shows between experimentations and the decomposition model in characterizing cured and uncured laminates with defect angles.
