Paper Abstract

A brief overview of the qualitative nondestructive evaluation techniques developed at the Center for Intelligent Material Systems and Structures is presented. The principal goal of the three techniques (impedance-based, laser Doppler vibrometer-based, and particle tagging) is to detect, on-line, incipient damage before the structural integrity is affected. By providing a better assessment of the structure, these real-time health monitoring will significantly reduce maintenance costs.
