IN-SITU STRUCTURAL HEALTH MONITORING OF GLASS FIBRE REINFORCED PLASTICS (Using Functional Interphases)


Abstract

Interphases in fibre-reinforced composites are vital regions for the stress transfer between fibres and surrounding matrix. Adding a percolated carbon nanotube network into the composites interphases allows the detection of mechanical stress strain behaviour by monitoring its electrical response. On-line resistance measurements on functionalized composites allow detecting of interphase failure or glass fibre breakage prior to ultimate structural failure, enabling Structural Health Monitoring.
