'sensing skin' detects cracks, harmful chemicals in structures

(North Carolina State University) Researchers have developed a multi-layered 'sensing skin' to detect corrosive or otherwise harmful substances in structures. The skin can also detect cracks and other structural flaws that are invisible to the naked eye.
