Abstract

Honeycomb composite structures widely used in aviation are sturdy and light-weight but they may accumulate water from the atmosphere during aircraft operation. The presence of water in honeycomb cells leads to a higher airplane mass and excessive corrosion of aluminum cores, while the frozen water endangers panel integrity. This work describes the use of infrared thermography for detecting water trapped in aviation honeycomb cells.
