Abstract
Because of the higher attenuation of AE signal in composite materials, it is required to develop a damage assessment technique less affected by the signal intensity in order to use AE signals for damage detection. In this research, we investigated impact induced AE signals using FBG sensors on carbon epoxy composite panel. The frequency characteristics of impact AE signals were examined with wavelet decomposition focused on the leading wave. Consequently, we established a damage assessment technique using the sharing percentage of the wavelet detail components of AE signal, and conducted a low-velocity impact test on composite laminates to confirm the feasibility of the damage assessment method with FBG sensors.
