Sensor Triangulation for Damage Localisation in Composite Plates
The aim of this paper is development of an algorithm for damage localisation in composite plates based on wave propagation signals registered by sensors. It is proposed to distribute the sensors uniformly over the area of a plate-like structure performing triangulation. Next the registered signals are processed and a damage influence map is created in each triangle separately in order to avoid problems connected with reflections from boundaries of the structure. The proposed procedure has been verified on numerical signals as well as experimental signals.
