The successful utilization of guided wave-based structural health monitoring (SHM) for detailed quantitative diagnostic of damage in composite aircraft primary structures depends on the excitation frequency, geometry, and positioning of the piezoelectric transducers. This study proposes a novel methodology to consistently define those parameters...

One of the advantages of thermoplastic composites relative to their thermoset counterparts is the possibility of assembling components through welding. Ultrasonic welding in particular is very promising for industrialization. However, uncertainty in the fatigue and fracture behaviour of composites is still an obstacle to the full utilisation...

In this paper, we investigated transducer placement strategies for detecting cracks in primary aircraft structures using ultrasonic Structural Health Monitoring (SHM). The approach developed is for an expected damage location based on fracture mechanics, for example fatigue crack growth in a high stress location. To assess the performance of the...

In this paper the behaviour of fibre Bragg grating (FBG) sensors under non-uniform strain distributions was analysed. Using the fundamental matrix approach, the length of the FBG sensor was discretised, with each segment undergoing different strain values. FBG sensors that are embedded inside composites, also undergo such non-uniform strain...

Fibre optic sensors can measure a range of physics and chemical parameters. Some of the more common fibre optic sensors are the fibre Bragg grating (FBG), the long period grating (LPG), the Fabry-Pérot Interferometer (FPI) and various distributed fibre optic sensors based on optical time-domain reflectometry (OTDR) and optical frequency domain...
