Access from EThOS:
A delamination damage prognosis system is defined using data available from surface strain field measurements and verified against experimental testing. Optical Grid Deflectometry measurements are interrogated to produce a damage detection and analysis technique. The output of this analysis is used to directly inform damage models in order to assess the effect of detectable damage on structural integrity. Damage · growth is investigated both experimentally and numerically in order to produce correlated models that can be used together with sensor outputs to predict the integrity of the damaged structure.
