LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  1. At the conclusion of this course the student should be able to:

  2. Describe the basic principles of bond testing

  3. List the main methods of bond testing

  4. Describe the cause and effect of various types of mechanical bond testing.

  5. Describe the operational steps required to carry out a bond test in each of the main methods

  6. Perform a bond test in each of the main methods

  7. Interpret and evaluate the test results.

  8. Locate defects in various composite structures with a high probability of detection.

Note: This course is targeted at students who have previous experience in ultrasonic inspection of aircraft structure. Although previous knowledge in Ultrasonic inspection is not essential, Aerospace Inspection Training are able to provide a 2 day introduction course covering ultrasonic theory in preparation for this course.
