Structural health monitoring (SHM)

details coming soon...

  • active sensing SHM methods based on acoustic-ultrasonic techniques for aerospace applications
  • vibration-based statistical time series methods for SHM
  • precise damage localization and accurate magnitude estimation with statistical confidence intervals
  • sequential methods for real-time implementation via binary and multi-hypothesis statistical decision making
  • electromechanical impedance-based methods for adhesively bonded structures
  • damage detection sensitivity characterization and reliability quantification
  • sensor fusion and hybrid sensing (integration of passive and active) methods for SHM
