Abstract— This paper presents an analysis of composite structures and fault detection mechanisms with reference to aerospace and sport applications. This work introduces a novel live failure detection and critical failure prevention mechanism primarily for composite materials. Firstly a bicycle system is studied and used as the basis for the investigation. Further research and development is carried out on a quadcopter system to investigate the practical applicability of the live structural failure detection method. The results indicate that the live failure detection method is one of the best possible methods to prevent critical failures in such systems when to compared to available systems today.
