WP2 - Inspection and monitoring

Description: 

A structural health management methodology is developed for in-situ monitoring of hybrid adhesive joints, consisting of:

  • Early prediction of damage by means of different NDT techniques: fiber optical strain gages, thermography, ultrasonic, acoustic emission, etc.

  • Reliability assessment of the sensing techniques to detect damage due to environmental conditions.

  • Guidelines for the use of NDT techniques for inspection of hybrid adhesive joint in a marine environment.
