In this research programme, methodologies for structural health monitoring (SHM) of composite overwrapped pressure vessels (COPV) were addressed. This works fit in the development of a COPV laboratorial prototype incorporating non-destructive sensing technologies, in order to detect and identify critical aspects that can occur during operation, aiming to reduce possible unwanted and unpredicted failures. Fibre Bragg grating (FBG) optical sensors and polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) polymeric piezoelectric were the selected sensing technologies. These sensors were embedded in the liner-composite interface during its manufacturing and monitored the prototype while being tested under cyclic internal pressure loading. The data collected from the different sensors type were compared. The Analysis of the data, together with the assessment to the suitability of the two sensing technologies in SHM applications are discussed.
