Abstract

With the fusion of composites and fiber-optic technologies, the possibility of truly smart structures is now being realized. Embedding smart fiber optic cables within a composite material allows the instantaneous monitoring of structural loads in real time. This ultimately leads to intelligent structures capable of reporting unusual loads or fatigue load data for further analysis. The technology is already proven within the maritime environment.
