Abstract

Glass reinforced plastic (GRP) and carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CF'RP) laminates are durable, versatile and light-weight materials which are progressively replacing metals traditionally used in aerospace, automobile, rail, gas-storage and many other industries. If these composite structures were to debond, fracture or seriously degrade whilst in-service, public injury or catastrophic failure could result. Therefore, in-service condition monitoring techniques for composite structures are most significant and are of immediate importance.
