Paper Abstract

A new methodology has been developed for structural damage assessment and monitoring based on smart material sensors. The sensors transform to a ferromagnetic phase progressively as a function of strain. The solid-state phase transformation is useful in determining the local structural peak strains in monitored high stress sites. The technology is discussed with applications provided to illustrate the utility of the approach in addressing a range of engineering problems
