Abstract

The structural health monitoring of large-scaled fiber-reinforced composite components plays a crucial role for the further advancement of lightweight design approaches for a large-range application spectrum. Using textile-based and technological integrated stress sensors within the composite’s textile reinforcement, the detection of serious structural damages on early stages as well as an in-situ monitoring of mechanical loading conditions in inaccessible areas within immediate distance of the load-bearing layers of the subsequent composite component can be realized by those in situ condition monitoring systems, enabling the possibility of just in time maintenance or even local repairs before full structural failures occur.
