A Sparsity Promoting Algorithm for Time of Flight Estimation in Guided Waves - Based SHM

Abstract : Ultrasonic Guided Waves (GW) are employed by many Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) systems. In plate-like components, GW based defect detection and localization is typically achieved through multiple piezoelectric transducers arranged in different array configurations. In active methods, one or more actuators are used to generate GWs and the sensors work as wave detectors. Defects can be detected and localized from the wave scattering that they generate. To increase the precision of localization approaches, it is important to minimize the uncertainty in the estimation of the time of flight (ToF) of the waves scattered by the defect. Such task is complicated by the dispersive and multimodal nature of ultrasonic GW propagation. In this work, we analyse two algorithms to extract the ToF from waveforms acquired with a Scanning Laser Doppler Vibrometer (SLDV). The algorithms outputs are used to feed beamforming procedures to image cracks with various orientations.
