Aerospace industries are obliged, from european aviation safety agency (easa) and federal administration aviation (faa), to inspect all aircraft components for possible defects/flaws, before and during their service life using reliable and efficient non destructive testing (ndt) techniques. Visible damage often covers up the actual reason and it is the latter you wish to identify quickly for example, if a fracture turns out to be the starting point of the actual failure, it should be closely investigated. Damage/defect types and inspection comparison of composite non-growing damage and metal fatigue crack damage ul-ll (from mil-17 fig7222(c)) time/cycles strength ul ll investigation is required this is done by: changing the visual distance, angle, lighting, cleanliness etc.
Nonetheless, composite airframes are susceptible to many of the same forms of operational damage as metal ones, so smaller repair jobs are always needed such damage includes ground equipment collisions, bird strikes, hail and lightning strikes.
