Evaluation of Glass Fiber/polypropylene Composites by Quantitative Laser Ultrasonic and Acoustic Emission Techniques


The objective of this work is to study the influence of the moulding conditions of manufacture on the mechanical behaviour of the composites, when which they are submitted to mechanical loading. In order to evaluate the quality of interfacial adhesion, two non-destructive testing procedures were combined. Laser ultrasonic was employed to evaluate the state… (More)
