Project: An embedded network of sensors in composites for local sensing (Enclose)
01/01/15 – 31/10/21
The project ENCLOSE focuses on the detection of damage in structural composites by specially developed sensors. Two classes of sensors are envisaged. The first class is based on an electrical output (strain gauge en piezoelectric materials). The second group uses mechanoluminescent materials. The sensors are produced by reactive sputter deposition, inkjet printing and solid state synthesis.
