Book Description :

Structural health monitoring (SHM) is a relatively new and alternative way of non-destructive inspection (NDI). It is the process of implementing a damage detection and characterization strategy for composite structures. The basis of SHM is the application of permanent fixed sensors on a structure, combined with minimum manual intervention to monitor its structural integrity. These sensors detect changes to the material and/or geometric properties of a structural system, including changes to the boundary conditions and system connectivity, which adversely affect the system's performance. This book's primary focus is on the diagnostics element of SHM, namely damage detection in composite structures. The techniques covered include the use of Piezoelectric transducers for active and passive Ultrasonics guided waves and electromechanical impedance measurements, and fiber optic sensors for strain sensing. It also includes numerical modeling of wave propagation in composite structures. Contributed chapters written by leading researchers in the field describe each of these techniques, making it a key text for researchers and NDI practitioners as well as postgraduate students in a number of specialties including materials, aerospace, mechanical and computational engineering. Contents: Damage Detection and Characterization with Piezoelectric Transducers — Active Sensing (Z Sharif Khodaei and M H Aliabadi)Modeling Guided Wave Propagation in Composite Structures Using Local Interaction Simulation Approach (Yanfeng Shen and Carlos E S Cesnik)Design and Development of a Phased Array System for Damage Detection in Structures (Bruno Rocha, Mehmet Yildiz & Afzal Suleman)Degradation Detection in Composite Structures with PZT Transducers (Wiesław M Ostachowicz, Paweł H Malinowski & Tomasz Wandowski)Numerical Modelling of Wave Propagation in Composite Structures (Sourav Banerjee)SHM of Composite Structures by Fibre Optic Sensors (Alfredo Guemes)Impact Detection and Identification with Piezoceramic Sensors — Passive Sensing (Z Sharif Khodaei and M H Aliabadi) Readership: Researchers and NDI practitioners as well as postgraduate students in a number of specialties including materials, aerospace, mechanical and computational engineering.

Book Description :

This book is organized around the various sensing techniques used to achieve structural health monitoring. Its main focus is on sensors, signal and data reduction methods and inverse techniques, which enable the identification of the physical parameters, affected by the presence of the damage, on which a diagnostic is established. Structural Health Monitoring is not oriented by the type of applications or linked to special classes of problems, but rather presents broader families of techniques: vibration and modal analysis; optical fibre sensing; acousto-ultrasonics, using piezoelectric transducers; and electric and electromagnetic techniques. Each chapter has been written by specialists in the subject area who possess a broad range of practical experience. The book will be accessible to students and those new to the field, but the exhaustive overview of present research and development, as well as the numerous references provided, also make it required reading for experienced researchers and engineers.

Book Description :

System identification (SI) techniques are important in reducing gaps between the constructed structural systems and their structural design models and in health monitoring for damage detection. Modal-parameter SI and physical-parameter SI are two major branches in SI.Special character of this book: (1) The physical-parameter SI method explained in this book requires only two accelerometers for measurement of records. Furthermore only a simple manipulation of Fourier transformation is required.(2) The stiffness and damping can be identified simultaneously.(3) The modal parameter SI can supplement or support the result by the physical-parameter SI method.(4) In place of usual low-pass or high-pass filter techniques, a novel noise-bias compensation method is explained. Because the noise itself is not known in many cases, the identification and elimination of noise is a tough problem.(5) A new technique of system identification is explained in the case where an inner vibration source exists.(6) The accuracy of the explained SI methods is examined by the actual recorded data.(7) MATLAB codes are available.This book is intended for Structural Engineers, Mechanical Engineers, Researchers, Graduate and undergraduate students.
