Abstract

A novel structural assessment technique for composite bonded repairs of metallic structures is introduced, using embedded fiber optic Bragg sensors. By modulating the curing temperature and utilizing the large difference in the thermal expansion coefficients between the composite patch and the Aluminum substrate, the tracking of both the curing process and bonding quality is made possible.
