Hybrid metal composite structures offer high potential in lightweight construction. They combine different materials, which are superior to classic structures in terms of strength, stiffness and weight. However, the development and manufacture of such components are very complex. On a prototype scale, such hybrid structures have already been successfully designed, manufactured, and tested. But the transfer to industrial applications is currently still a challenge. In this NDT4INDUSTRY seminar, a concept will be presented on how to integrate non-destructive testing (NDT) into the development process model of hybrid metal composites.
