Abstract:

The proposed work focuses on developing an advanced damage detection scheme for integrated vehicle health management systems. It is based on guided wave GW testing schemes that can interrogate the structure on demand and evaluate its state. GW generation and sensing using embedded and or surface mounted piezoelectric transducers, while holding much promise for Structural Health Monitoring SHM, is not as well understood and have several theoretical and modeling issues that need resolving.
