A health indicator (HI) is a valuable index demonstrating the health level of an engineering system or structure, which is a direct intermediate connection between raw signals collected by structural health monitoring (SHM) methods and prognostic models for remaining useful life estimation. An appropriate HI should conform to prognostic...

We present a generic methodology for developing a Health Indicator out of strain-based Structural Health Monitoring data suitable for implementation in prognostic tasks. For this purpose, an in-house test campaign is launched. Single-stringered composite panels are subjected to compression-compression fatigue with the strains being monitored...

The present study proposes a comprehensive integrity assessment approach for a full-scale adhesively-bonded bi-material joint for maritime applications. The joint represents a cross-section of the bond-line connection of a ship with a steel hull and a sandwich composite superstructure. The full-scale joint consists of a sandwich composite...

After half a century of developing fatigue delamination prediction models, where accuracy seems more important than physical understanding, this research aims to merge both aspects. To that aim, strain energy release (SER) within the fatigue load cycle was studied using acoustic emission. The correlation between the measured strain energy...

In this paper, a new indicator to localize fatigue damage in a fibre glass composite structure, i.e. spar cap to shear web thick adhesive joint of a wind turbine blade, is presented. This indicator is based on the effect of damping on the phase of the mode shapes of the structure. When fatigue damage occurs, damping increases in the defective...

A hybrid methodology based on numerical and non-destructive experimental schemes, which is able to predict the structural level strength of composite laminates is proposed on the current work. The main objective is to predict the strength by substituting the up to failure experiments with non-destructive experiments where the investigated...

Optical fiber sensors (OFSs) represent an efficient sensing solution in various structural health monitoring (SHM) applications. However, a well-defined methodology is still missing to quantify their damage detection performance, preventing their certification and full deployment in SHM. In a recent study, the authors proposed an experimental...

The present work aims at understanding the stochastic matrix crack evolution in CFRP cross-ply laminates under tension–tension fatigue loading. An experimental campaign was carried out on twenty-three specimens at different stress levels, while two optical techniques were used for the in-situ monitoring of the accumulation of transverse...

An increasing interest for Structural Health Monitoring has emerged in the last decades. Acoustic emission (AE) is one of the most popular and widely studied methodologies employed for monitoring, due to its capabilities of detecting, locating and capturing the evolution of damage. Most literature so far, has employed AE for characterizing...

Under in-plane compressive load conditions, the growth of a delamination initially induced by an impact can be followed by a fast growth after a threshold level, which leads to a catastrophic failure in composite structures. To avoid reaching this critical level, it is essential to uncover the delamination size and growth pattern in real time....

A health indicator (HI) serves as an intermediary link between structural health monitoring (SHM) data and prognostic models, and an efficient HI should meet prognostic criteria, i.e., monotonicity, trendability, and prognosability. However, designing a proper HI for composite structures is a challenging task due to the complex damage...

Acousto-ultrasonic composite transducers (AUCT), which are made of piezoceramic materials embedded in a reinforced polymeric matrix, are promising for the health monitoring of composite structures. However, when they are integrated into highly loaded thermoplastic composite structures, ensuring proper joining properties is a challenge. The...

Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM) is a policy that uses information about the health condition of systems and structures to identify optimal maintenance interventions over time, increasing the efficiency of maintenance operations. Despite CBM being a well-established concept in academic research, the practical uptake in aviation needs to catch...

Composite structures are highly valued for their strength-to-weight ratio, durability, and versatility, making them ideal for a variety of applications, including aerospace, automotive, and infrastructure. However, potential damage scenarios like impact, fatigue, and corrosion can lead to premature failure and pose a threat to safety. This...

During the service of composite airframes, damage initiates and accumulates due to the manufacturing imperfections, impact damage and cyclic loadings, leading to the degradation in its load-bearing capacity. The nature of the degradation process is complicated due to the multi-mode damage propagation and complexity in the structural details...

Health indicators are indices that act as intermediary links between raw SHM data and prognostic models. An efficient HI should satisfy prognostic requirements such as monotonicity, trendability, and prognosability in such a way that it can be effectively used as an input in a prognostic model for remaining useful life estimation. However,...
