Abstract

The DAMASCOS (Damage Assessment in Smart Composite Structures) project is a European Union funded program of work bringing together a number of academic and industrial partners throughout Europe. The aim of DAMASCOS is to apply new ultrasonic detection and generation techniques integrated within the structure, together with advanced signal processing to realise damage assessment and ageing characterisation in composite structures. This paper describes the background, experimental findings and future applications of the technology as the project moves into its final phase.
