The influence of the nano-sized particulate or slender structures admixed into the material of regular composite structures of various architectures is being enthusiastically studied in many places across the world, but the study is yet in its infancy because there are so many aspects to be investigated. This work is basically on foam-cored structural sandwich composites, and even here there are many variables involved, for example the nano-enhancer can be introduced into the reinforcement, the matrix or the foam. The focus of the work is on some possible effects of the presence of the nano-materials on the NDE process in testing these composites. Acoustic emission is emphasized in these studies, as it appears to hold promise for non-destructively testing materials of this nature, and basic and standard mechanical test methods are employed.
