Paper Abstract

The paper presents guided elastic waves and their identification and damage interaction in a CFRP plate. After the excitation of a fiber transducer, different elastic waves emerge in a plate. By using specially developed 3D laser scanning software it was possible to specify the different wave modes. These wave modes have been described concerning their propagating velocities and different motion components. The interaction of different wave modes with introduced impact damage (7J) is shown. In some experiments, it was proven that impact locations can be derived from the detected Lamb waves. This work is continued to develop structural health monitoring systems (SHM) for selected aircraft components (e. g. stringer elements, panels).
