New Trends in Structural Health Monitoring
A motivation for structural health monitoring. Structural health monitoring of aircraft structures. Vibration-based damage diagnosis and monitoring of external loads.Statistical time series methods for vibration based structural health monitoring. Fiber optic sensors. Damage localisation using elastic waves propagation methods experimental techniques. Application for wind turbine blades. Experts actively working in structural health monitoring and control techniques present the current research, areas of application and tendencies for the future of this technology, including various design issues involved. Examples using some of the latest hardware and software tools, experimental data from small scale laboratory demonstrators and measurements made on real structures illustrate the book. It will be a reference for professionals and students in the areas of engineering, applied natural sciences and engineering management.
Systematic and unique treatment of statistical time series methods for SHM Illustrated examples on the use of the methods Numerous experimental results
