Damage Detection in Smart Composite Plates

  • Ranjan GanguliEmail author


In this chapter, a damage detection approach for a smart composite structure is presented. A brief background on smart structures is provided in Sect. 5.1. Smart structural systems have gained importance in recent years and have found applications in aerospace, automotive, and space applications [1, 2, 3, 4]. A structure can be made smart by introducing sensors, actuators, and information processing algorithms.
