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
Electrodynamics shakers of several sizes and loading
Signal conditioners and amplifiers
