Paper Abstract

The aim of this paper is to present methods for enhancing damage visualization in structures based on wave propagation phenomenon. The method utilizes filtering and processing of full wavefield acquired by the laser vibrometer. Laser vibrometer allows to register full wavefield in elements of a structure instead of single point measurements acquired by e.g. piezoelectric sensor. In this way new possibilities for Nondestructive Evaluation arise enabling visualization of elastic waves interacting with various types of damages. Measurements obtained with a scanning laser vibrometer can be combined with effective signal and imaging processing algorithms to support damage identification. In this paper new method for wave filtering of propagating waves is tested on both numerical results and experimental data obtained from laser vibrometry measurements of composite plates. Processing of signals registered at a rectangular grid of measurement points covering inspected area of the plate involve 2D DFFT (Discrete Fast Fourier Transform), wavenumber filtering and inverse DFFT. As a result new damage index is proposed and compared with other methods like RMS and frequency-wavenumber filtering.
