Abstract

Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymers (CFRP) are the basic components for lightweight aircrafts, which are the primary goal of aerospace industry in the close future. The bonding of CFRP panels is based on adhesive technologies but, currently, no NDT technique has been validated for ensuring the quality of the bonds. Chemical surface contamination is the primary cause of weak bonding and potential airframe failures. Operative needs such as portability, rapid reponse, versatility make e-nose technology an interesting solution to develop an ad-hoc tool for surface contamination detection in this scenario. © 2014 Springer Science+Business Media.
