Smart Textiles for in situ Monitoring of Composites proposes a 'smart textile' approach to help solve the problem of real-time monitoring of the structural health of composites. The book combines textiles, composites and structural health monitoring knowledge to present an integrated approach to the deployment of smart textiles to monitor failure modes in composite materials. It introduces the theory of smart textiles for monitoring and measurement applications, describes established and developing techniques and approaches for using smart textiles for in-situ monitoring, and includes different fiber/matrix combinations and hybrid structures that are all presented using academic research and real-world case studies.

As smart textiles are fitted with flexible adapted sensors and actuators that detect stress, deformation, temperature changes, light intensity, and other signals from the environment, this book is a timely resource on the topic.

Professor Vladan Koncar is head of research at ENSAIT and director of the GEMTEX research laboratory. He has authored more than 200 scientific articles, including journal papers, book chapters and conference proceedings.
