New Sensor for Detecting Defects in Lightweight Structures
New Sensor for Detecting Defects in Lightweight Structures
Light and strong at the same time – this is what designers want from a material that can be used to manufacture energy-efficient components. Lightweight components made of carbon-fiber reinforced plastic possess these characteristics. They consist of two components: high-quality carbon fibers and a plastic matrix into which these fibers are embedded.
