An absence of proper design rules has limited the application of composite materials to specific areas. However, within these application areas there is still a need to regular monitor the component resulting in significant downtime and loss of revenue. To overcome this it is proposed to have an on-line monitoring system capable of global checking of the component. Fiber optic polarimetric sensors are chosen in this study to globally characterize the health of a component. Polarimetric sensors have better sensitivity than intensity sensors and at the same time are more rugged than interferometric sensors. In this study, the effect of debonds and fiber breakages are investigated in composite bend specimens.
