Abstract
Smart composites contain inbuilt sensors which allow the material to be monitored during manufacture and service life. Whilst the technology is well established in the aerospace market, there are a number of factors preventing the widespread use of smart composites in other areas including the construction and offshore industries. A review of these problems is presented. In particular the influence of sensor implants on the mechanical performance of advanced composites is considered.

These problems are being addressed by Pera International's Advanced Materials Group, the objective, to develop a working strategy for the use of smart composites in critical structural applications.
