Understanding and analysing the complex phenomena related toelastic wave propagation has been the subject of intense researchfor many years and has enabled application in numerous fields oftechnology, including structural health monitoring (SHM). In thecourse of the rapid advancement of diagnostic methods utilisingelastic wave propagation, it has become clear that existing methodsof elastic wave modeling and analysis are not always very useful;developing numerical methods aimed at modeling and analysing thesephenomena has become a necessity. Furthermore, any methodsdeveloped need to be verified experimentally, which has becomeachievable with the advancement of measurement methods utilisinglaser vibrometry.

Guided Waves in Structures for SHM reports on thesimulation, analysis and experimental investigation relatedpropagation of elastic waves in isotropic or laminated structures.The full spectrum of theoretical and practical issues associatedwith propagation of elastic waves is presented and discussed inthis one study.

Key features:

Covers both numerical and experimental aspects of modeling,analysis and measurement of elastic wave propagation in structuralelements formed from isotropic or composite materials Comprehensively discusses the application of the SpectralFinite Element Method for modelling and analysing elastic wavepropagation in diverse structural elements Presents results of experimental measurements employingadvanced laser technologies, validating the quality and correctnessof the developed numerical models Accompanying website ( )contains demonstration versions of commercial software developed bythe authors for modelling and analyzing elastic wave propagationusing the Spectral Finite Element Method

Guided Waves in Structures for SHM provides a stateof the art resource for researchers and graduate students instructural health monitoring, signal processing and structuraldynamics. This book should also provide a useful reference forpractising engineers within structural health monitoring andnon-destructive testing.
