Abstract

A finite element model of piezoelectric fiber transducers bonded to an aluminum plate is used to study planar guided waves inspection of a plate. It has been shown that a linear combination of in-plane and out of plane strains matches the transducer obtained voltage better than it does displacements. A combination of infinite elements and viscous surface tractions were employed to minimize unwanted boundary reflections to enable study of sensor sensitivity to small defects. Finally, design of a piecewise sensing element has led to successfully defining the location of a crack that is only 1.5% the length of the transducer.
