Finite Element Modelling of Piezoelectric Sensors for Damage Identification in Composite Panels
In this paper the application of the finite element method is presented to modeling piezoelectric sensors and actuators for use in structural health monitoring of composite panels. It this demonstrated that FEM can be used to simulate sensorised composite panels and investigate the damage detection capability of sensors.
