In recent years, the damage detection with E/M impedance method has gained increased attention. The method uses small-size piezoelectric active sensors intimately bonded to an existing structure, or embedded into a new composite construction. Experimental demonstrations have shown that the real part of the highfrequency impedance spectrum is directly affected by the presence of damage or defects in the monitored structure (Figure 1). Pioneering work on utilization of E/M impedance method was… CONTINUE READING
