This article presents a systematic investigation of power and energy transduction in piezoelectric wafer-active sensors (PWAS) for structural health monitoring (SHM). After a literature review of the state-of-the-art, we developed a predictive modeling of the multi-physics power and energy transduction between structurally guided waves and PWAS in closed-form analytical expressions. The model assumptions include: (a) one-dimensional axial and flexural wave propagations; (b) ideal bonding (pin… CONTINUE READING
