Wavy plies or wrinkles in carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) composite structures can result in performance knockdowns. The performance impact of the ply distortion can depend on many factors, but two commonly desired parameters are the wrinkle height and width. An ultrasonic B-scan of the wrinkle can reveal the ply distortion; however, visual interpretation of the B-scan can vary by person. An automated method to analyze the B-scan for the ply distortions is desirable to provide consistency of measurement. This talk will present two algorithms that have been implemented to process the B-scans for measuring the height and width of a composite wrinkle. Before the technical presentation, I will share my industrial working experiences as a specialist in computational science. If time permits, I will touch on some work related to text mining in the end.
