Ultrasonic technique using an automated C-scan has been established as the primary
inspection method for composite materials. In this paper, the principles of ultrasonic
inspection, the type of defects that may be generated during fabrication and/or during
service of fibre-reinforced composites and their detection using ultrasonic techniques are
described. Emphasis is placed on the capabilities and limitations of ultrasonic techniques
in testing composites. The material used in the present study was graphite/epoxy.
