Abstract : A study for using ultrasonic spectroscopy as a nondestructive evaluation method for determining the integrity of adhesive bonds between composite materials and metals was evaluated. Mechanical properties of bonded joints were compared to acoustic parameters for various adhesive substrate systems. (Author)
