Abstract

Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) is an emerging imaging modality that produces either a 2D or 3D impedance image (conductivity or impedivity) of the subject under test. In this study we tested and demonstrated a new application of applying an EIT system to detect delamination and evaluate the damage location, size, strain and severity for Structure Health Monitoring (SHM) of composites (i.e. Carbonfibre-reinforced polymer (CFRP) composites).
