Health monitoring

 ECND acoustic methods for Integrated Health Monitoring (Structural Health Monitoring - SHM)

This research is based on the strong synergy of skills developed by members of the cluster-ECND PdL in terms of linear and nonlinear acoustics, including ultrasound of complex materials, the acoustic emission, processing information, inverse problems and instrumentation. The proposed research aim, using integrated sensors to materials and / or structures to characterize the diffuse damage and / or localized and monitor the health of complex materials (composites, concrete, ...) with aim to estimate their remaining life (remaining potential).
To this end, we propose to apply a method in emerging ECND, acoustics and nonlinear acoustic emission in materials and structures instrumented with piezoelectric elements, thus favoring a comprehensive characterization and control of integrated health.
