Paper Abstract

Composite materials provide many advantages over conventional materials including metals, especially for space applications. However, composites have failure modes that are complex and difficult to identify, and various cracks and delamination are predominantly difficult to detect visually. In this regard, an effective method of monitoring the integrity of composite materials and structures exposed to hazardous space environments is necessary to ensure the long-term reliability of composite materials in aerospace applications. FBG sensors are advantageous for space applications due to their immunity to various environments. In this study, FBG sensors were used to investigate LEO environment exposure monitoring of CFRP.
