Welcome to the Structural Health Monitoring Laboratory
We have facilities to study vibrations qualitatively and wave propagations in systems understanding the structural dynamics in applications involving:
The SHM lab utilizes a combination of several actuators and sensing, with data acquisition and signal processing for damage detection and quantification in metallic and composite structures.
DAQ boards from LMS, m+p, and National Instruments
Accelerometers, PZTs, PVDFs, strain gauges, etc.
Laser doppler vibrometer
ICP Load cells
Electrodynamics shakers of several sizes and loading
Impact hammers for modal tests
Signal conditioners and amplifiers
Oscilloscopes and signals generators
