Abstract

Predictive simulation of ultrasonic nondestructive evaluation and structural health monitoring (SHM) is challenging. This paper addresses this issue in the context of guided-waves with piezoelectric wafer active sensors (PWAS). The principle of guided wave with PWAS transducers is studied and an analytical model is developed to predict the waveform and theoretical frequency contents solution. Two benchmark problems, one 1-D and the other 2-D to achieve reliable and trustworthy predictive simulation of guided wave with finite element method have also been proposed.
