Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

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.
