L. Gerdes and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Frank Walther present a comparative analysis of impact damage detection using computed tomography (CT) and active thermography (AT) on carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) materials. The study explores damage detection methods, experimental setups, and results, aiming to enhance aviation industry practices. The project focuses on developing material processing for RTM CF-PU and precise testing methods for fatigue behavior and damage characterization.
