Abstract
This paper presents the LAser Shock Adhesion Test (LASAT) using symmetrical laser shocks. The study is part of ComBoNDT European project that develops new Non-Destructive Tests (NDT) to assess adherence properties of bonded composite structures. The technique, its principle, and the experimental setup are first presented. To evaluate the technology, a various contaminated CFRP assemblies are tested using the LASAT. For each case, their bonding strength is discriminated from a reference bonding strength. If the results are promising, they also rise a lot of questions concerning the state of the material post laser shot. A series of photomicrographs of tested areas are performed showing how the contamination impacts the crack propagation pattern. The study concludes on the technology capability to differentiate a correct assembly from a contaminated one.
