Composite

The ability to embed sensors within a material gives engineers scope to measure strain on components during use under varying load conditions. Already used for health and usage monitoring, in many cases this offers advance warning of problems whilst equipment is in service.

 

As the fiber is smaller than each layer of the laminate material, it does not interfere with the properties of the structure being monitored and measures intrinsic rather than surface strain.
