Composite Drilling induced damage characterization

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


The aim of this work is to characterize the damage induced by high speed drilling in carbon fibre reinforced composites components. A computational tool was developed and it allows the characterization of the damage in dimensional and geometrical terms. The adopted methodology is based on the concepts of the theory of inertia principle and through the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of the binary image resulting from the image processing and obtained by digital radiography it was possible to estimate the principal direction of the damage.
