Tomographic Damage Detection

Sustainability icon, disabled. A green leaf.

The purpose of this research is using the piezo sensor network to generate data and inverse imaging to create a tomographic damage image of carbon fiber materials. This Lamb wave-base damage detection method will help simplify the testing process and reduce the cost of internal damage detection without causing further damage on the testing sample. The result of this research can be used to obtain the internal damage of carbon fiber materials due to manufacturing limitations and fatigue. This is important for health monitoring and sustainability, such as monitoring an aircraft’s health condition.
