Project: Application of Bragg sensors for the monitoring of the dynamic behaviour of composite materials.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-02
- Optical fibre Bragg-sensors are embedded in composite materials. By continuous monitoring of the deformations one should be able to map the applied (dynamic) loads and the mechanical behaviour of the material. The embedding of the sensors and the measurements will be done on simple laminates, but also on more representative components, in which material degradation occurs in a more realistic way.
