Impacts can inflict serious damage on composite structures. For structures on the surface of an aircraft this has potentially critical consequences. The problem is exacerbated by the fact that the damage is internal, with little or no indication on the surface of the structure, making it difficult to detect. A potential solution to the problem would be an impact monitoring system that could detect when an impact occurred. This idea was explored using a composite panel, inside which a SMART… CONTINUE READING
