Title (EN) COMPONENTS CONFIGURED TO AUTONOMOUSLY DETECT AND ACCOMMODATE STRUCTURAL CHANGES
(FR) COMPOSANTS CONFIGURÉS POUR DÉTECTER DES CHANGEMENTS STRUCTURELS ET POUR S'ADAPTER DE MANIÈRE AUTONOME À CES DERNIERS
Abstract:
(EN) A component has a first structural configuration and a second structural configuration. The component includes a sensor assembly including a plurality of interconnected structural members defining a plurality of load paths. A first structural member and a second structural member define a first load path when the component is in the first structural configuration. The first structural member and a third structural member define a second load path when the component is in the second structural configuration. The second load path is configured to bypass the second structural member. The sensor assembly is configured to detect a characteristic of the component that changes when the component switches between the first structural configuration and the second structural configuration.
(FR) L'invention concerne un composant présentant une première configuration structurelle et une seconde configuration structurelle. Le composant comprend un ensemble capteur comprenant une pluralité d'éléments structurels interconnectés définissant une pluralité de trajets de charge. Un premier élément structurel et un deuxième élément structurel définissent un premier trajet de charge lorsque le composant est dans la première configuration structurelle. Le premier élément structurel et un troisième élément structurel définissent un second trajet de charge lorsque le composant est dans la seconde configuration structurelle. Le second trajet de charge est conçu pour contourner le deuxième élément structurel. L'ensemble capteur est conçu pour détecter une caractéristique du composant qui change lorsque le composant commute entre la première configuration structurelle et la seconde configuration structurelle.
