An Innovative Secondary Bonding of Sensors to Composite Structures for SHM Application
A novel procedure for installation of PZT sensors on composites is developed. The procedure is shown, through extensive tests, to be reliable, repeatable and repairable. The integrity of the bonded sensors are assessed following the RTCA DO-160 Environmental conditions and test procedures for airborne equipment. The developed bonding film has been tested on both thermoset and thermoplastic coupons and compared co-cured and secondary bonded sensors with epoxy.
