AMMP 2650 - Materials Testing, Mechanics, and Methods


This course overviews the identification and selection of non-destructive testing methods and inspection processes to support quality assurance. Composite testing for varied manufacturing industry applications will be evaluated, including Compression tests, Bearing-strength test, Flatwise tension test and Short-beam shear test. This course considers the capabilities of most common testing methods in composite NDT applications such as Visual Testing (VT or VI), Ultrasonic Testing (UT), Thermography, Radiographic Testing (RT), Electromagnetic Testing (ET), Acoustic Emission (AE), and Shearography Testing and the demonstrated advantages and disadvantages of these methods. Inspection methods used by the NDT will be explored including dye-penetrant, eddy current inspection (EI), ultra-sound, and magnetic particle inspections (MPI). Familiarization with basic heat-treating processes, spacecraft hardware, materials and measurements will be included.  
Minimum Credits: 3
