Paper Abstract

First test results of a multilayered fiber optic impact damage detection system fabricated within an aircraft wing composite leading edge are reported. The graphically presented results indicate that embedded optical fiber will track the growth of a delamination region. These results strongly support the concept of structurally integrated fiber optic damage assessment system for composites.
