1 Carbon/Epoxy Laminate Compression After Impact Load Prediction from Ultrasonic C-Scan Data Eric v. K. Hill, Christopher D. Hess and Yi Zhao OBJECTIVES Three sets of 3.5 x 6 inch 16-ply AS4/3501-5A carbon/epoxy coupons impacted from 0-20 ft-lb f with 5/8 inch diameter hemispherical tup to create barely visible impact damage (BVID) Back-propagation neural network (BPNN) prediction of compression after impact (CAI) load from transformed ultrasonic (UT) C-scan image Goal:±15%Goal: Worst case prediction error within ±15% APPROACH/TECHNICAL CHALLENGES AE data too noisy: Train BPNN using 50 data points representing column summation data from UT C-scan image and known CAI loads as input Test BPNN using column summation UT C-scan image to predict CAI loads on remaining coupons ACCOMPLISHMENTS/RESULTS worst case errors %, 16.62%, and % for the three setsUT image data alone used to predict ultimate compressive strengths with worst case errors of %, 16.62%, and % for the three sets predict accurately without known impact energyBPNN able to predict accurately without known impact energy – valid for real world applications such as impact damaged aircraft wings C/Ep Coupon in Boeing BS-7260 Compression After Impact Test Fixture with Three Acoustic Emission Transducers Attached Instron Dynatup 9250 Calibrated Impactor Delaminations in Coupon Due to Impact Damage
