Laminated composites often develop hidden damages, e.g., delamination. Such events can be effectively sensed through embedded structural health monitoring (SHM) systems, taking advantage of the interlaminar regions to place sensors; experimental campaigns proved that this approach may turn out to increase the sensitivity to small defects and reduce the remaining lifetime of the structure. In former studies, we proposed the adoption of a surface-mounted SHM system based on (inertial) MEMS sensors, which has the advantages of low cost and of suppressing the mentioned effects on lightweight structures. On the other hand, the relatively low accuracy of MEMS sensors may hinder reliable monitoring of the system state; this can be overcome through redundancy and an efficient sensor placement. An automatic approach is presented to define the optimal topology of a network featuring a limited number of sensors, wherein the extent and location of stiffness degradation due to damage are assumed to be unknown. The goal of the optimization procedure is to maximize the overall sensitivity to damage of the measurements collected through the whole SHM system. The method has been implemented in a multi-scale frame, to efficiently handle sensors, damaged regions and structural components of different sizes. Although based on deterministic modeling, results are provided to show how measurement noise can be dealt with; a comparison with a stochastic approach based on Bayesian experimental design is provided too. Experimental data collected by testing composite specimens and panels are finally discussed, to assess the identifiability of damage through the collected (noisy) measurements.

A topology optimization approach has been recently proposed to maximize the sensitivity to damage of measurements, collected through a network of sensors to be deployed over thin plates for structural health monitoring purposes. Within such a frame, damage is meant as a change in the structural health characterized by a reduction of relevant stiffness and load-carrying properties. The sensitivity to a damage of unknown amplitude and location is computed by comparing the response to the external actions of the healthy structure and of a set of auxiliary damaged structures, each one featuring reduced mechanical properties in a small region only. The topology optimization scheme has been devised to properly account for the information coming from all of the sensors to be placed on the structure and for damage depending on its location. In this work, we extend the approach within a multiscale frame to account for three different length scales: a macroscopic one, linked to the dimensions of the whole structure to be monitored; a mesoscopic one, linked to the characteristic size of the damaged region; a microscopic one, linked to the size of inertial microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) to be used within a marginally-invasive health monitoring system. Results are provided for a square plate and for a section of fuselage with stiffeners, to show how the micro-sensors have to be deployed to maximize the capability to detect a damage, to assess the sensitivity of the results to the measurement noise and to also discuss the speedup in designing the network topology against a standard single-scale approach.
