SHM Lab


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:

    • Aeroespace

    • Mechanical

    • Civil Structures

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.
