Lattice Block Material™ (LBM™) is the name given to a new class of materials that makes use of the well-understood principles of trusses and space frames to create a variety of components having high strength to weight ratios. Differences in product design, materials selection, and manufacturing process, however, can lead to uncertainty as to the overall performance of a given end product. For this reason, a variety of nondestructive methods were utilized to characterize LBM™ for potential Navy applications, including, visual inspection, x-ray radiography, x-ray computed tomography, and infrared thermography.
