Abstract: Active Fiber Composites made from piezoelectric fibers were originally developed as actuators for adaptive materials systems.
Their properties, however, also allow their use as sensor or emitter-receiver in various applications.
After presenting selected characteristics, the potential of Active Fiber Composites for structural health monitoring is discussed in comparison with that of conventional piezoelectric elements.
