Abstract

The prediction of fatigue damage accumulation is a crucial element in the estimation of the Remaining Useful Life of composite structures subjected to cyclic loading. In this paper, two Glass-Fibre Reinforced Plastics, a thin strip and a thick beam, are subjected to fatigue load while being monitored with Piezo Wafer Active Sensors. Two distinct methods, one based on Electro-Mechanical Impedance Spectroscopy (EMIS) and one based on the Reconstruction Algorithm for Probabilistic Identification of Damage (RAPID), are employed. Both methods are mostly used for damage detection, yet not for damage accumulation monitoring. The results presented in this paper show that damage accumulation can be followed during fatigue loading of the test objects. The trends shown in the damage accumulation graphs give an indication of the damage accumulation, and even a change in the damage evolution stage, yet a complete RUL estimation is not possible without further analysis of the experiments, possibly assisted by numerical modelling.
