Guided Waves in Structures for SHM
The Time-domain Spectral Element MethodeBook - 2012
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 ( www.wiley.com/go/ostachowicz )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.
