Adaptive Structures Engineering Applications


Adaptive Structures Engineering Applications

For some time the adaptive structures community has focused on transducer effects, and the closest advance into actually having a structural system show signs of intelligence is to include adaptive control implemented with a smart material. Here we examine taking this a step further by combining embedded computing with a smart structural system in an attempt to form an autonomous sensor system. The focus here is based on an integrated structural health monitoring system that consists of a completely wireless, active sensor with embedded electronics, power and computing. Structural health monitoring is receiving increased attention in industrial sectors and in government regulatory agencies as a method of reducing maintenance costs and preventing disasters. Here we propose and discuss an integrated autonomous sensor ‘patch’ that contains the following key elements: sensing, energy harvesting from ambient vibration and temperature, energy storage
