Structural Health Monitoring

Image: structural health monitoringStructural Health Monitoring (SHM) efforts
in the Aerospace Structures Section are focused on developing practical SHM applications to real world aircraft problems using the latest sensor technology developed at SwRI or that are commercially available. We are developing our own Reasoners to provide continuous monitoring of critical structural areas, comparing expected damage with real time measured damage. Our goal is to provide the user/maintainer with real time structural health assessments and projected maintenance needs.
