    Abstract

    Tetrabromoethane (TBE)-enhanced x-ray radiography is probably the most powerful tool available for documenting the damage accumulation process in resin-matrix composite materials. It can easily find individual matrix cracks, delaminations, and fiber bundle fractures. When used in the stereo mode, it can provide a detailed spatial description of the damage. With these obvious advantages, it is surprising that TBE (or some other x-ray opaque penetrant) enhanced x-ray radiography is not more widely used.
