Abstract

Periodic nondestructive tests are used to detect cracks on aircraft components that could be catastrophic if not found soon enough. In structural health monitoring (SHM) applications, fixed sensors could be used. However, technology needs to be proven sound before bringing it into industry. This paper describes several different methods for estimating probability of detection for SHM applications. It compares different methods that can be used in several real life scenarios. This paper describes the statistical methods behind the methods and uses simulation to compare methods.
