Paper Abstract

Matching pursuit (MP) is an adaptive signal decomposition technique and can be applied to process Lamb waves, such as denoising, wave parameter estimation, and feature extraction, for health monitoring applications. This paper explored matching pursuit decomposition using Gaussian and chirplet dictionaries to decompose/approximate Lamb waves and extract wave parameters. While Gaussian dictionary based MP is optimal for decomposing symmetric signals, chirplet dictionary based MP is able to decompose asymmetric signals, e.g., dispersed Lamb wave. The extracted parameter, chirp rate, from the chirplet MP can be used to correlate with two Lamb wave modes, S0 and A0.
