Wind energy is one of the most important renewable energy sources, effectively addressing climate change issues and promoting sustainable development on a global scale. Blade failures may cause long shut-down times and may present a safety hazard. Continuous and real-time monitoring of the blade conditions is helpful for finding blade damage at...

Gantry cranes play a pivotal role in various industrial applications, and their reliable operation is paramount. While routine inspections are standard practice, certain defects, particularly in less accessible components, remain challenging to detect early. In this study, first a finite element model is presented, and the damage is introduced...

This thesis aims to investigate the feasibility of developing a successful unsupervised Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) methodology to detect damage in structures, specifically bridges. Detecting damage, especially in its earliest stages, is challenging, thus prompting the need for robust and effective methods. The success of such a...

In this paper, the feasibility of using far-field acoustic measurements as a non-contact monitoring technique for wind turbine blade leading edge erosion is assessed. For this purpose, a DU96 W180 airfoil with several eroded leading edge configurations of different severities is experimentally investigated. The eroded leading edges are designed...

Offshore support structures and mooring systems are predominantly subject to corrosion and fatigue. These structures are typically covered with marine growth of various types. Conventional inspection methods for assessment of the structural integrity require access to the cleaned surface of these structures; however, the cleaning process is...

The Digital Twin (DT) concept, as understood nowadays, appeared in the early 2000s as an attempt to create virtual replicas of physical assets, such as bridges, that can be used to examine, monitor and manage their performance. Up to this day, it has been successfully applied in the fields of aeronautics, manufacturing, medicine, and more...

A multiresolution finite wavelet domain method, that utilizes Daubechies wavelet and scaling functions for the hierarchical approximation of state variables, is presented. The multiresolution approximation yields a hierarchical set of equations of motion involving the coarse component of generalized displacements, while additional equations...

Deep learning has been widely implemented in industrial inspection, such as damage detection from images. However, training deep networks requires massive data, which is hard to collect and laborious to annotate, especially in the aviation scenario of aircraft engines. To alleviate the demand for annotated data, we create BladeSynth - a large...

In recent years, with the development of the wind power industry and the increase in the number of wind turbines, the condition monitoring of blades and the detection of damage are increasingly important. In this work, a new non-contact damage-detection approach is experimentally investigated based on the measurement of airfoil aerodynamic noise...

Assessment of cultural heritage assets is now extremely important all around the world. Non-destructive inspection is essential for preserving the integrity of the artworks while avoiding the loss of any precious materials that make it up. The use of Infrared Thermography (IRT) is an interesting concept since surface and subsurface faults can be...

Vibration-based structural damage detection (SDD) has been a subject of intense research in structural health monitoring (SHM) for large civil engineering structures over the decades. The performance of the conventional SDD approaches predominantly relies on the rational choices of the damage feature and classifier. Hand-crafted features or...

Marine propellers made of fibre-reinforced composites have demonstrated the potential to outperform metallic propellers in terms of efficiency and under-water noise radiation. For full realisation of this potential in a tailored design process with realistic constraints, accurate information on the hydrodynamic loads acting on composite...

Areas of structural damage mechanically weaken Antarctic ice shelves. This potentially preconditions ice shelves for disintegration and enhanced grounding line retreat. The development of damage and its feedback on marine ice sheet dynamics has been identified as key to future ice shelf stability and sea level contributions from Antarctica....

Recent decades have witnessed more and more wind turbines (WTs) being installed onshore and offshore. Health condition monitoring for WTs structures and components is increasingly becoming a compelling concern for stable power output and operational safety of a wind farm [1]. Blade damages seem to occur with a higher probability ahead of other...

Wind energy is one of the cleanest methods of producing electricity. It plays a major role in the transition towards green energy. It is estimated that the installed capacity of wind energy will cover more than 6 % of total global electricity demand by the end of 2019. As the demand grows the requirement for bigger wind turbine also grows. Each...

Under urban sprawl the trend of new established complex structures has rapidly increased. In this context little importance has been given to maintenance, even if this represents an important step in combating and avoiding disasters and developing improved future structural designs. Over the last years low-cost Global Navigation Satellite System...

Compared to metals, composite materials offer higher stiffness, more resilience to corrosion, have lighter weights, and their mechanical properties can be tailored by their layup configuration. Despite these features, composite materials are susceptible to a diversity of damages, including matrix cracks, delamination, and fibre breakage. If...

In the Netherlands there are many bridges that crosses waterways, which are key nodes in the transportation system. The safety and integrity of these bridges is nowadays assessed by (visual) inspections at regular intervals. This approach cannot provide information about damage development in between inspections, leading to potential failure or...
