Abstract

With the increasing complexity of aircraft structures and materials there is an essential need to continually monitor the structure for damage. This also drives the requirement to optimize the location of sensors for damage detection to ensure full coverage of the structure whilst minimizing the number of sensors required, hence reducing costs, weight and data processing requirements. An experimental study using 3D scanning laser vibrometry was carried out to investigate Lamb wave interaction with a disbonded stiffener. A computational study using local interaction simulation approach was carried out for comparison with the experimental results, and was found to produce good results which compared qualitatively with the experimental results. This demonstrated that the simulation technique is well suited for performing sensor location studies for active sensor networks and has the potential to serve as a useful tool for damage detection sensor network designers.
