We have developed a method for incorporating sensors for the continuous electrical measurement of load and impact events on composites (including carbon) for structural health monitoring (SHM)
A small bridge was manufactured to demonstrate the way of using this technology.
We envisage applications such as composite fuselages, yacht masts, sails, deep sea structures, oil installations, racing cars, bridges, to name but a few.
There is a 20 minute video available: we will be happy to mail you a copy. Clicking on the picture below will open the PowerPoint show from our demonstration event. We will be pleased to visit you (without any obligation, of course) to discuss how this might help your structure.
