Electromechanical Impedance Spectroscopy and Guided Wave Propagation Predictive Modeling on Composite Materials

Abstract : Electromechanical impedance spectroscopy (EMIS) and guided wave (GUW) propagation are a popular structural health monitoring (SHM) technique, which had found applications in many fields of engineering: mechanical, aerospace, civil and others. Piezoelectric wafer active sensors (PWAS) are lightweight and inexpensive transducers that enable a large class of SHM applications such as: (a) embedded GUW ultrasonic, i.e., pitch-catch, pulse-echo, phased arrays, (b) high-frequency modal sensing, i.e., EMIS method, and (c) passive detection, i.e., acoustic emission (AE). The aim of the work presented in this paper is to provide tools to extend modelling capacities and improve quality and reliability of EMIS and 2-D GUW propagation models using commercially available multi-physics finite element method (MP-FEM) packages on fibre reinforces polymers (FRP). The focus of this paper is on the challenges posed by using PWAS transducers in the composite laminate structures as different from the metallic structures on which this methodology was initially developed.
