Abstract : The purpose of this project is to investigate or develop methods applicable to the non-destructive inspection of glass fiber reinforced plastic end-items leading to the evaluation of the quality of these products. The object of this progress report is to describe investigations of the feasibility of measuring laminate glass content by an ultrasonic method, and to describe the results of preliminary investigations directed toward developing techniques for correlating ultrasonic attenuation measurements with physical properties of laminates. jg p6
