Abstract

A strategy for selecting and developing nondestructive evaluation (NDE) methodologies for fiber reinforced polymer composite structural components to be used in civil infrastructure applications is described. Conventional and innovative evaluation approaches are discussed.

Actual experience with NDE of hybrid carbon and glass fiber reinforced vinyl ester pultruded beams that are installed in a bridge carrying automotive traffic is described.
