A Rigid Shearographic Endosscopic for Applications 2005-01-0488

Shearography has been proved to be highly effective for nondestructive testing (NDT), especially for NDT of composite materials used in the automotive and aerospace engineering. While its application in material testing and material research has already achieved more and more acceptance in research and industry, its applications are mainly limited to the inspection and testing of an object surface which can directly be observed by a shearographic camera. Its application is mainly limited to inspect and test an object surface which can directly be observed by a shearographic camera. It is impossible to inspect an internal surface of a container. If the reflected light of the surface, which has to be examined, can’t reach the shearographic camera there is still no inspection possible. This paper presents the development of a rigid shearographic endoscope. The development enabled shearographic inspection on both external and internal surfaces of objects. The principles and methodology of a rigid shearographic endoscope are described and the measuring sensitivity and an application example are presented.
