8 September 1993 Smart structures concepts for aircraft structural health monitoring
Author Affiliations +
Automated smart systems to monitor the structural health of military aircraft have the potential to reduce life cycle costs, improve turnaround times, and enhance survivability. However, before on-board structural health monitoring systems (SHMS) can be a reality, further advances in several technology areas, as well as careful integration of the component technologies, are required. This paper presents an assessment of the component technologies and discusses the requirements, architecture, technology integration, feasibility, and payoffs of SHMS for military aircraft.
