Monitoring under composite repair using WAND sensors
Inductosense, in partnership with a number of composite repair companies has validated the performance of the WAND sensors under composite repair. Design regulations are driving the need to seek a solution to monitor structures underneath composite wrap repairs and the Inductosense WAND system provides a solution for monitoring structures underneath composite wrap repairs. The system was tested with several wrap materials and shown to be compatible with a number of materials including glass fibre, aramid and uni-directional, as well as cross-ply carbon fibre. The WAND system provides instant reliable thickness readings from the sensor underneath the composite wrap. With the accumulated measurements, a corrosion rate can be determined from the historical measurements of the WAND system. This enables the end user to plan better and operate structures more efficiently, particularly repaired components.
