X-ray and Neutron Radiography
X-Ray radiograph showing some metal loss in the highly corroded areas.
Neutron radiograph showing large areas of corrosion.
The two images are of a corroded panel from a fighter aircraft.
Lighter areas of the panel area in the X-ray image indicate the loss of aluminium metal due to the extreme corrosion whilst dark areas in the neutron image show the concentrated presence of corrosion products containing water.

Neutron radiograph of 3D object showing adhesive material and test patches of corrosion.
