A quantitative non-destructive evaluation (NDE) of impact damaged biaxial and quadriaxial non-crimp fabric (NCF) composite laminates made by resin infusion under flexible tooling (RIFT) technology using a volumetric ultrasonic (UT) pulse-echo immersion testing system was carried out. NCF composites laminates made by RIFT technology were subjected to drop weight low-velocity dynamic tests to generate impact damage in the composite material. The main scope of ...
