COMPOSITE REPAIR NDT/NDI HANDBOOK

1996-11-01
CURRENT
ARP5089
This document provides background information on the design, application, repair and inspection of composite structures, including metal bonding, used on civil transport aircraft. The objective of this document is to assist inspectors to know where to expect composite and metal bonded parts on the aircraft, to understand the capabilities of current NDT methods and to aid interpretation of inspection results. This document does not contain inspection procedures. It is intended to be informative and should not be used singularly, that is, it does not override any instructions that may be issued within a manufacturer's or operator's published documentation.

DRYING OF THERMOSETTING COMPOSITE MATERIALS

1996-08-01
CURRENT
ARP4977
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) describes standard methods for drying commercial aircraft composite structures prior to repair and gives general guidelines on use and applicability. It addresses the removal of liquids that have collected inside the structures through open damage, microcracks, or porosity and the removal of absorbed moisture from the composite material. The methods described in this document shall only be used when specified in an approved repair document or with the agreement of the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) or regulatory authority. If this document is used for the drying of materials other than thermosetting composite materials, the fitness for this purpose must be determined by the user.
