Guided Waves for Structural Health Monitoring

Project description

Better monitoring of engineering structures will benefit industry and citizens alike

Complex engineering structures such as bridges and highways deteriorate over time, often in ways that are not visible. Structural health monitoring (SHM) enables continuous evaluation to monitor changes and facilitate early detection of faults before expensive or even deadly damage occurs. Guided wave-based SHM detects abnormalities via changes in the propagation of guided ultrasonic waves through structures. Although promising, it is not widely used yet in industrial settings. The sensitivity of guided ultrasonic waves to many parameters is difficult to optimize due to the lack of suitable modelling software. GW4SHM is training new researchers in simulation and signal processing. The project plans to create customised tools for industry to facilitate uptake of guided ultrasonic wave-based SHM in numerous sectors.
