Health monitoring of aerospace structures
Smart sensor technologies and signal processing
Aerospace structures are currently inspected using traditional non-destructive techniques. However, in recent years the application of a range of different technologies and sensing techniques have advanced damage detection in metallic and composite materials. New developments are capable of allowing continuous monitoring as well as integrated and on-line damage detection systems for aircraft maintenance. These technologies are attractive to manufacturers and operators of civil and military aircraft for their reduced life cycle costs, reduced inspection/maintenance effort, improved high rate operator availability, extended life of structures and improved safety. These factors all lead to more efficient aircraft.
Written by industrial and academic experts in the field, this book brings together recent developments in sensor technologies, damage detection techniques and signal processing procedures for health and usage monitoring of aerospace structures.
Health Monitoring of Aerospace Structure:
- Is the first book fully dedicated to health monitoring of aerospace structures usi ng recent advancements in smart sensor technologies and signal processing.
- Discusses how new technologies need to be developed for efficient and reliable damage monitoring systems in aircraft.
- Demonstrates the feasibility of smart technologies for health and usage monitoring of aerospace structures.
- Covers numerous aspects related to end-user requirements, specifications and design parameters.
- Presents real case studies and applications including in-flight tests.
A truly multidisciplinary book, Health Monitoring of Aerospace Structures is essential reading for academic and industrial researchers, post-graduate students, aircraft designers, manufacturers, end-users and maintenance providers. This book will also appeal to many working on structural health monitoring and smart structures in other fields such as civil engineering and ground and sea transportation.
L'auteur Wieslaw J. Staszewski
Wieslaw J. Staszewski was born in Zielona Góra, Poland, in 1962. He received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the Technical University of Poznan, Poland, in 1985 and 1986, respectively, and a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the Victoria University of Manchester, UK, in 1994. He worked for three years in the Technical University of Poznan, doing research in condition monitoring. He then spent six years, including eighteen months British Council Fellowship, doing research work on time-frequency and time-scale methods in gearbox fault detection at the Victoria University of Manchester. He joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Sheffield, UK in 1995 as a Research Associate, Research Fellow, Lecturer, and then Senior Lecturer. Since October 2003 he has been a Reader in Mechanical Engineering. Dr Staszewski has experience of research collaborative projects both in the UK and Europe, working with industrial partners and the EC. He is the author of over 140 technical publications, predominantly in the damage detection and advanced signal processing areas. This includes one monograph on wavelets for damage detection, one edited book on health monitoring of aerospace structures and over 40 refereed journal papers. Dr Staszewski is the Associate Editor of three international journals: Smart Materials and Structures, Structural Health Monitoring and International Journal of COMADEM. He has been involved in organisation of many international conferences and invited to present seminars, lectures, conference keynote addresses in the UK, Europe, USA and Asia. Dr Staszewski is a member of ISO/BSI committees and EPSRC Engineering Network on Structural Integrity and Damage Assessment (SIDA). He is also a Chartered Engineer, a Fellow of the Institute of Physics, and a Member of: the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, the Institution of Diagnostics Engineers, the Indian Institute of Smart Structures and Systems. Dr Staszewski was awarded a DSc by the Polish Academy of Sciences (IMP-PAN) in February 2002 for his research contribution to Mechanical Engineering.
