Nonlinear Acoustics for Structural Health Monitoring – Classical vs. Non-classical Approaches
Abstract »The past two decades have marked significant research interest in nonlinearities produced in micro-cracked and cracked solids. These investigations have been based on the analysis of nonlinear static stress-strain characteristics and various dynamic elastic wave interactions. Crack-induced elastic, thermo-elastic and dissipative-type nonlinearities have been observed within various material scales and for various strain levels. This talk reports recent developments in the field, covering various aspects related to classical and non-classical nonlinear mechanisms and their applications for structural damage detection. The focus will be on modelling, numerical simulations, implementation and monitoring strategies.
