NDT for operationnal FRP equipements

I would like to know the types of non-destructive Test for operationnal FRP equipement .

RE: NDT for operationnal FRP equipements

I guess the question is too urgent to spend any time in formulating a decent question with relevant details.

RE: NDT for operationnal FRP equipements

I think my question is clear!
i will reformulate it,
what are the methods of non-destructive testing to be applied to equipment in FRP, especially those in service.

RE: NDT for operationnal FRP equipements


Non-destructive testing is very limited for items in service.

Barcol hardness can be used to determine state of cure.

Each item should have had (typically A4 size) sample plates made with same resin and reinforcement, by same people, at same
time as item, and cured in same manner. These are held and stored by the laminator company.

These can then be subjected to testing for tensile strength and Modulus etc.

This procedure is considered good practice in UK.

Trust this is helpful
