Development of Integrated MEasurement Systems

Project description

Innovative integrated testing methods for passenger aircraft

Monitoring damage in passenger aircraft is enhanced by a new philosophy which uses the disturbance to the strain field in the structure caused by the damage to identify significant damage and track its spread. Recently, the CS2 project INSTRUCTIVE demonstrated this method by using infrared technology, showing it to be more capable of identifying small cracks in metallic structures than any other available technique. The EU-funded DIMES project has developed an innovative integrated testing system to detect a crack or delamination in a metallic or composite structure. The project combined these innovative methods with established techniques to demonstrate an integrated testing method on passenger aircraft structures.
