The quality control of composite materials remains an important topic of research in nondestructive testing (NDT) of modern materials, in particular, the ones intended for aerospace industry. Over the last decade, there has been a noticeable increase in interest to the ultrasonic stimulation of tested materials and analysis of dynamic temperature distributions. This method is commonly implemented with two techniques, viz. high-power stimulation at a fixed acoustic-signal frequency and low-power resonant ultrasonic stimulation. Results are provided on comparing the above ultrasonic NDT methods using the example of an impact damage in a graphite epoxy-filled composite. The comparison is made based on the criteria of temperature signals, revealed flawed zone, and productivity of testing.
