Abstract: In this paper algorithm for damage localisation in thin panels made of aluminium alloy has been proposed. Mentioned algorithm uses Lamb wave propagation methods and geometrical approach for damage localisation. Elastic waves are generated and received using piezoelectric transducers. Excited elastic waves propagate and reflect from panel boundary and discontinuities existing in the panel. Wave reflection can be registered through the piezoelectric transducers and used in signal processing algorithm. Processing…
