Mechanical Vibrations Applied to Nondestructive Evaluation of Materials and Structures

Description

Engineers and researchers, particularly in the aerospace and offshore oil industries, began to utilize vibration based damage detection during the late 1970s and early 1980s. According to Farrar and Doebling the most mature and successful application of vibration-based damage detection technology has been in the monitoring of rotating machinery. From those applications, many nondestructive test (NDT) and nondestructive evaluation (NDE) methods which are based on mechanical vibrations have been developed offering skills to engineers and owners to speedily and effectively examine and monitor aging structures and quality of materials. Fields of application of vibration based techniques are various, going from cultural heritage and monumental structures to aircraft composite structures, concrete bridges, and marine and railway structures.

We invite investigators to contribute original research studies as well as review articles.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Vibration based condition monitoring of mechanical parts
  • Methods of structural health monitoring over time
  • Modal and spectrum analysis of structures for dynamical identification
  • Laser Doppler vibrometry applied to structural health assessment
  • Vibration based methods for health and restoration problems in cultural and art heritage
