Paper Abstract

A prototype fibre optic damage assessment system for an aircraft wing leading edge is described. This system is based on the fracture of embedded optical fibres. The sensor configuration was determined from tests conducted on small coupons. We report on the design and recent construction of an instrumented wing leading edge panel. The tests that will be carried out for its evaluation will be discussed.
