WIMDaD Wire Mesh Damage Detection - Comprehensive damage detection on composite materials
- WiMDaD is a novel, continuous measuring method which is particularly suitable for large-scale applications such as Wind turbine blade is suitable. The sonsor consists of a network of wires whose breaking behavior corresponds to that of the fibers in the composite material. The cross points are connected via diodes. An electronic evaluation unit can switch electrical paths via specific diodes, so that if a line breaks, the defective section can be identified.
