Paper Abstract

The application of embedded sensors for use in monitoring the cure of composite snowboards during manufacturing was demonstrated. Ultrasonic and capacitive sensors were used and the results compared. Both techniques showed indications of the end of cure in the evaluation of plots of wave attenuation versus time and change in capacitance versus time.
