Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) System for Polymer Composites: A Review


Objectives: The main objective of this paper to review the various currently available Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) systems for the Polymer Composites particularly in aviation industries. Methods: This paper provides a complete overview about the various types of damage detection technique currently used for the polymer composite structure and also highlights the concept behind the each technique. A brief overview of the research work on experimental and theoretical studies on the various SHM systems is considered and several research papers on these topics are cited. This paper reviews various recent advancement made in the field of damage monitoring techniques, particularly the Piezoresistivity technique with the advent of nanomaterials. Outcomes: This paper serves as an effective source of literature for those interested in pursuing research in the Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) System for the polymer Composites. This paper also provides an effective source of information about the possible research gap in the field the SHM.
