Abstract

Conventional glass optical fibers were used to detect impact damage in a thermoplastic-based fiber-metal laminate (FML) system. The results suggest that for a higher fracture sensitivity, optical fibers should be embedded close to the impact surface in order to be sufficiently sensitive to detect energies of 1 to 2 Joules in these systems.
