CVM™ Applications & Solutions
Laboratory Based Testing
The CVM™ system has been proven in laboratory programs dating to the late 1990’s. (Sharp and Clark, 2001). The laboratory equipment has been designed for ease of use, to allow CVM™ sensors to be monitored in real time from basic coupon level tests to complex full scale fatigue programs with Airbus and Embraer. The laboratory programs fall into three basic categories:
- Programs utilizing CVM™ to find damage in specific coupons or components
- Programs to determine the functionality of the CVM™ system, an
- Programs to determine the robustness and durability of the CVM™ system.
