Paper Title:
Temperature Effects on Guided Wave Structural Damage Detection
  Abstract

Guided wave structural damage detection is one of promising candidates for the future aircraft structural health monitoring systems. There are several advantages of guided wave based damage detection: well established theoretical studies, simple sensor devices, large sensing areas, good sensitivity, etc. However, guided wave approaches are still vulnerable to false warnings of detecting damage due to temperature changes of the structures. Therefore, one of main challenges is to find an effective way of compensating temperature changes and to imply it to existing damage detect algorithms. In this paper, a simple method for applying guided waves to the problem of detecting damage in the presence of temperature changes is presented. In order to examine the effectiveness of the presented method, delaminations due to low-velocity impact on composite plate specimens are detected. The results show that the presented approach is simple but useful for detecting structural damage under the temperature variations.
