Previously, an evaluation study has been conducted on a Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) strategy applied to a composite aileron by deriving the Modal Strain Energy Damage Indicator (MSE-DI). MSE-DI was used to localize the impact damage location. However, this study has also shown that the damage type may have had influence on the performance of the algorithm. To test this hypothesis, two identical composite stiffened panels have been manufactured. In this paper, the one-dimensional MSE formulation is used to extract damage indicators from two identically produced panels. A Laser Doppler Vibrometer is used to measure vibrations from 253 points on each panel. Both panels were identically damaged by impacting the skin causing a delamination of the stiffener. The damage indicators for the two panels are extracted and compared to each other. The results from confirm that the MSE-DI can successfully detect damage. However, for this specific case, the localization of the damage was not accurate due to a limited number of measured bending moment mode shapes.
