Abstract
The state-of-the-art of Thermal Wave Imaging as an NDE technique for Aging Aircraft is summarized. The technique is described, and examples are given of application to the thermal wave inspection of aircraft for such subsurface defects as corrosion, disbonded doublers, fluid intrusion, and delaminations of composite structures.
