Abstract

Fundamental Shear Horizontal (SH0) guided waves have been simulated using finite element software in order to locate a crack in a plate structure. Long but narrow piezoelectric fiber composite strips have been considered as transducers to excite and receive SH guided waves. A segmented transducer, which enables piecewise sensing, has been shown by finite element analysis to be capable of locating a tiny through-thickness crack. The main benefits are that SH waves could be used to inspect fluid loaded structures and that it is possible to detect a crack oriented parallel to the wave vector.
