Non-destructive testing (NDT) of bonded assemblies (SealedwithoUTaKiss)

Non-destructive testing (NDT) of bonded assemblies (SealedwithoUTaKiss)

Acronym: SealedwithoUTaKiss
Funding body: European Commission
Status: Project

Composite materials make up 50% of the primary structures of new aircraft models. The growing demand for these materials is pressing the aerospace industry to develop reliable, cost-efficient inspection solutions for adhesively bonded hybrid assemblies, specifically for weak bonds and difficult-to-detect structural defects. The EU-funded SealedwithoUTaKiss Project will combine non-destructive testing methods, inline process inspection techniques and mechanical testing to assess the performance of adhesively bonded assemblies. Merging expertise from different fields, the project will offer the European aerospace industry a competitive advantage, resulting in more reliable, fuel-efficient and low-cost aircraft.
