Paper Abstract

Various sensor configurations useful in the prospective detection of perturbations in both polymeric composite and metallic materials are investigated. Attention is given to (1) a cross-point coordinate axis impact-and-location sensor, and (2) a strain gage-functioning tapered sensor for stress and crack detection. Crack initiation should be detectable if it occurs perpendicular to the sensor's line-of action, in the region between contact pads.
