  5. Rapid and Robust Dynamics-based Nondestructive Method to Monitor Structural Health

    SBC: Millennium Dynamics Corporation            Topic: AF04T016

    Phase I efforts have concluded in successful demonstration of the use of a Laser Doppler Vibrometer in detection of cracks in composite and metal test specimens. A Damage Index formulation based on the distributed strain energies associated with the dynamic response (low as well as high frequencies) has been shown to vividly indicate the presence, size, and orientation of a damage. Phase II effor ...
