Abstract

Composite materials are becoming increasingly more valuable due to their high specific strength and stiffness. Currently, most components are operated for a number of service cycles and then replaced regardless of their actual condition. Embedded fiber Bragg gratings are under investigation for monitoring these components in real time and estimating their remaining life. This article presents research conducted on a novel technique for prediction of the remaining life of composites under fatigue loading using embedded fiber Bragg grating sensors. A prediction is made of the remaining life at every cycle based on data collected from the sensors and the previous loading history.
