ASTM WK43438

    Revision of E2581 - 07 Standard Practice for Shearography of Polymer Matrix Composites, Sandwich Core Materials and Filament-Wound Pressure Vessels in Aerospace Applications

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E2581 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: E07.10 | Committee E07 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Last revision was approved 6 years ago, also WK29034, which contains Shearography guidance for COPVs, will supersede COPV-related shearography practice in E2581, and the revised E2581 document will focus instead on composite panels that are flat or have radii of curvature down to 12.7-mm (1/2-in.).
