Accomplishments – Body in White Inspections
Team completed the evaluation of the first generation array and probe holder on three body-in-white (BIW) structures
BIW inspections covered 100 beads with a wide variety of geometries and probe orientations
Over 80 % of the adhesive structure could be imaged at a speed of over 1 m/min
Images showed large-scale features such as adhesive spread and the fill-factor of the flange. The 1-mm resolution also allows small features such as surface springback, air entrainment; beads dribbles, and weld expulsion damage to be imaged.
