Description

Acousto-ultrasonics (AU) uses a pair of transducers to characterize distributed damage in composite plates. A transducer placed normal to the surface creates resonances which propagate as plate waves. Once the receiving transducer picks up the signal, simple analysis techniques, such as the zeroth or first moment of the power spectrum, are applied to create a Stress Wave Factor (SWF). The SWF is then used to quantify the damage state of the composite once the system has been properly trained.
