Paper Title:
Research on Impact Localization in Composite Materials Using Array Signal Processing and Lamb Wave
  Abstract

Impact localization is one of the major concerns in maintenance of aircraft structures built from composites. A lot of different techniques like acoustic emission, optimization technique based on system are nowadays investigated to identify impact location. But the method to identify impact position in complex composite structure with high accuracy in real time has not been completely established. In the present work, a new efficient method is proposed for identifying impact location in real and complex composite structure based on array signal processing and Lamb waves. There are two steps in the proposed method. The first step is to estimate the direction- of-arrival (DOA) of impact source using continuous wavelet transform (CWT) and array signal processing; the second step is to estimate the distance between impact source and the coordinate origin based on propagation characteristic of Lamb wave and CWT. The composite panel with stepped thickness of a real and complex aeronautical tank is used to verify the present methodology. The result shows that the present method may identify impact location fast and accurately.
