Rapid Measure of a leading ede abrasion


I am searching methods for measure an horizontal stabilizer leading edge made of aluminium 2XXX without doing any test.

I only find a method--> Compare the marks of the abrasion with a correct picture of an aluminium leadinge edge who has been tested in the same abrasion enviroment

NDI will find the thickness of a sheet ... if that's what you're looking for.

RE: Rapid Measure of a leading ede abrasion


We need a better definition of Your problem.

What do You want to do.. and WHY? IE: is there a sudden "screaming" need/urgency due to obvious [FAA, DoD, JAR, etc] airworthiness concerns... or this this an exercise assigned by Your boss?

What thickness, alloy-temper are You inspecting?

What inspection accuracy/tolerance do You need?

What do You intend to use the inspection results for?  

Regards, Wil Taylor
