A review is given of NDT methods for fibre-reinforced composite materials based on fibres such as carbon, boron, glass and Kevlar. The capabilities of present methods, such as ultrasonics, radiography, holography and thermography, are considered with respect to defect detection. Techniques which show promise of development as predictors of failure, eg vibration measurement and acoustic emission, are also discussed. © 1982.
