Autonomous Damage Detection and Vibration Control Systems

Objective

The objective of ADVICE is to design, model, develop and validate a smart wireless network of self-powered devices that can be used for simultaneous damping of structural vibrations and detection of damage in airplane and helicopter structures. ADVICE introduces both technological and methodological breakthroughs while addressing some of the main issues of "distributed measurement systems". In particular, ADVICE incorporates the following advances: * the vibrations of the structure are used as energy source for the actuators, sensors and other electrical loads. The emphasis is put on highly efficient energy harvesting, using state of the art technologies. This induces significant space and weight savings compared with various existing smart systems; * the sensor data collection is managed through a smart RF network; * several monitoring strategies are addressed aiming at defining new condition-based maintenance programmes and inspection procedures; * the robustness of the system is thoroughly investigated, including the structural integrity of the device itself and of the interface between the device and the support made of composite material; * in terms of damage evolution, coupling both vibration damping and real-time monitoring results in a synergetic mechanism between delaying the occurrence of critical damage and accelerating its detection. Among the ADVICE benefits, we can highlight: - the definition of custom-tailored maintenance programs, - the increase of the lifetime of the parts and of the vehicle, - the reduction of the fuel consumption, - the improvement of the cabin comfort, - the increase of the reliability of composite parts. All these elements help reducing the total ownership cost while being a major contribution to the aircraft safety and reliability. ADVICE gathers industrial partners, reputed research groups and innovative SMEs. This creates a coherent and ambitious consortium, able to tackle the complexity of ADVICE.
