Embedded-ultrasonics Structural Radar for Nondestructive Evaluation of Thin-wall Structures

  title={Embedded-ultrasonics Structural Radar for Nondestructive Evaluation of Thin-wall Structures},
  author={Victor Giurgiutiu},
Embedded-Ultrasonics Structural Radar (EUSR) is a new concept and methodology for in-situ nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of thinwall structures. EUSR utilizes (a) a Piezo Wafer Active Sensors (PWAS) array embedded onto the structure; and (b) electronic modules for signal transmission/reception, processing, and interpretation. The EUSR methodology is developed as an extension of our previous work on the Lamb wave propagation NDE. Based on the study of the Lamb wave characteristic, the… CONTINUE READING
