Embedded Active Sensors for In-situ Structural Health Monitoring of Aging Aircraft Structures


The aging of aerospace structures is a major current concern of civilian and military aircraft operators. Piezoelectric active sensors offer special opportunities for developing sensor arrays for in-situ health monitoring of aging aircraft fleet, because they are small, non-invasive, inexpensive and easily wired into sensor arrays. This paper presents work… (More)
