"Online NDT RTM inspection in composites"
Funding: AIRBUS Operations S.L. and CDTI (CIEN 2014 programme)
Project period: 2014 – 2017
Principal Investigator: Dr. Carlos González (carlosdaniel.gonzalez(AT)imdea.org)
ONLINE-RTM is a research collaboration between IMDEA Materials and AIRBUS Operations aiming at analysing sensor information during Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) injection to assess the quality of composite parts. The incorporation of this new technology in the manufacturing process will lead to a reduction of costs because the need for an exahustive non-destructive inspection after manufacturing will be reduced.
