Paper Abstract

More attention has been drawn to ultrasonic guided waves (UGW) based damage detection method for its advantages of wide range inspection of large-scale structures. However, complex propagation characteristics of guided waves as well as traditional contact ultrasonic transducers limit its application for the practical damage detection. In this work, A fully noncontact laser ultrasonic detection system is designed by combining YAG pulsed laser with Scanning Laser Doppler Vibrometer (SLDV) to achieve high resolution sensing of UGW field in the structure. A Temporal filter method with multiple frequency bands is proposed to extract the scattering signal without reference signal. The f-k time reversal imaging method is introduced to obtain the reconstructed incident wavefield and scattered wavefield, while the cross-correlation imaging condition is used to identify the damage location in plate structures. Finally, the imaging results of different frequency bands are integrated to achieve accurate imaging with high-precision and high signal-to-noise ratio.
