Compression-after-Impact Testing of CFRP Laminates Subjected to Simulated Lightning Damage Monitored by Acoustic Emission
CFRP laminates made of nano-particles-coated carbon fibers and damaged by a simulated lightning strike were tested under the compression-after-impact (CAI) mode, during which the damage progression was monitored by acoustic emission (AE). The effects of nano-particles coating on the degree of lightning-damage and the mechanical integrity of composite structures damaged by lightning strikes have been evaluated in terms of AE activities.
