AISHA II : Aircraft integrated structural health assessment II

Project Details


The safe use of complex engineering structures such as aircrafts can only be guaranteed when efficient means of damage assessment are in place. Whereas aircraft design is nowadays based on a damage tolerance approach and time based inspection cycles, it is envisaged that the large cost associated with this approach can be drastically reduced by switching to a condition based maintenance schedule. This does require continuous health monitoring capabilities using integrated sensing technology and autonomous damage assessment.
