Damage Localization on Two-Dimensional Structure Based on Wavelet Transform and Active Lamb Wave-Based Method
Damage characterization was carried out by comparing single mode sensor signals collected before and after the damage event. By subtracting the signals of both conditions from each other, a scatter signal is produced which can be used for damage localization. By using Gabor wavelet to analyze single mode Lamb wave recorded before damage and scatter signal, the difference of time-of-flight can be obtained. Combining with the ellipse technique, the localization experiment on fiberglass plate of dimension 100×100×2mm is completed.
