Damage characterisation and prognosis in composite materials

A delamination damage prognosis system is defined using data available from surface strain field measurements and verified against experimental testing. Optical Grid Deflectometry measurements are interrogated to produce a damage detection and analysis technique. The output of this analysis is used to directly inform damage models in order to assess the effect of detectable damage on structural integrity. Damage ยท growth is investigated both experimentally and numerically in order to produce correlated models that can be used together with sensor outputs to predict the integrity of the damaged structure.
