Paper Abstract

Composite is one of the most widely used industrial materials because of high strength, low weight, and high corrosion resistance properties. Different parts of composite structures are normally joined using adhesives or fasteners that are prone to defects and damages. A reliable method for prediction of the defect location is needed for an efficient structural health monitoring (SHM) process. Heterodyne effect is recently utilized for damage detection in the bonding zone of composite structures where debonding is expected to change the linear characteristics of the system into nonlinear characteristics. This paper briefly introduces this novel defect locating approach in composite plates using the heterodyne effect. For the first time, an Artificial Neural Network methodology is utilized with heterodyne effect method to find the defect location in composite plates. The main objective of this article is to develop a neural network based methodology for prediction of damage location, particularly for the bond inspection of composite plates.
