Material testing is a major concern in many manufacturing and aeronautical industries, where structures require periodic inspection using equipment and manpower. Environmental Noise (EN) is the major concern when localizing the damage in real time. Inspecting underlying components involves destructive approaches. These factors can be alleviated using Non Destructive Testing (NDT) and a cost effective embedded sensor system.
This project involves NDT implementation of Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) with filtering techniques in real time. A spectrogram and a scalogram are used to analyze lamb response from an embedded array of Piezo Transducers (PZT). This project gives insights on implementing a real time SHM system with a sensor placement strategy and addresses two main problems, namely filtering and damage localization. An Adaptive Correlated Noise Filter (ACNF) removes EN from the lamb response of a structure. A damage map is developed using Short Time Fourier Transform (STFT), and Continuous Wavelet Analysis (CWA).
