SHM System Based on ANN for Aeronautical Applications


Article Preview

In the present work a Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) system based on the use of Artificial Neural Network (ANN) method is presented that is suitable for aeronautical applications. The proposed methodology can be applied for the case of stiffened panels that are typical in aeronautical structures. The effect of sensor network layout, as well as noise applied during the training and prediction phase of the ANN application, is examined.
