Abstract

In this paper, thermographic inspections, ultrasonic C-scan and terahertz imaging were used to detect damages caused by impacts in natural, non-natural and hybrid composites. In particular, different hybrid structures were used. In some samples, numerical simulations were performed to predict the damage. A comparison of the results based on experimental and simulated experiments were afterwards conducted with the aim to explore the inspection capability of each technique.
