Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

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.
