The exploratory research will focus on creating a synergistic effect by combining the competences of all five partners, and on the practical implementation of knowledge gained during exchanges and workshops organised within WP2 and WP3. In particular, it will focus on using CNT-doped fibres, veils or strips to provide self-sensing capabilities, to encapsulate sensors facilitating their embedment into the composite, and to protect them in service. Thanks to the self-sensing capabilities and/or the encapsulated sensors such parameters of the composite as load and stiffness changes, disbanding, delamination and micro-cracking will be measured. The information collected on the current structural health will allow to improve maintenance efficiency and safety.
