Delamination is one of the most common defects in carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) components, such as those used in aircraft and wind turbine blades. To detect delaminations, different NDT methods such as ultrasonic (UT), eddy current (EC) scanning, flash thermography, and recent developed pulsed-eddy-current-(PEC-) simulated thermography are conducted for comparison and evaluation of 1. Introduction. The elasticity of the urinary bladder ensures its proper functioning during various phases of the micturition cycle [1, 2].Alteration in bladder elasticity leads to bladder dysfunction, which manifests clinically as lower urinary tract symptoms including incontinence and high-pressure upper tract changes in some cases [2–6].The elasticity of urinary bladder are attributed to

Fig. shows a typical ultrasonic FBG sensing system based on power detection, which is used in the following acousto-ultrasonic detections that are described later in this chapter.
By contrast, the edge filter detection method uses a narrow bandwidth light source, such as a semiconductor tunable laser source (TLS) (Lissak et al.,Lee To examine the feasibility of the proposed laser ultrasonic scanning system and image processing technique, the scheme using fixed-point AE sensor and scanning pulse laser as shown in Fig.2is employed for ultrasonic imaging and damage High power optical fibre delivery system for the laser generation of ultrasound R.J.

Such interferometer can be particularly attractive for industrial applications because it can be implemented as a simple and robust all-fiber system based on commercial components :// Reference  describes the use of a hybrid PZT/FBG system for active detection of impact delamination damage in a composite plate using acousto-ultrasonic tomography.
Figure 21 shows a schematic of the sensors layout. The advantage of the FBG sensors is that several of them can be laid out on the same optical fiber, hence reducing the number In this paper, the feasibility of using optical methods to detect impact damage in thin laminates is investigated and discussed.
Specimens impacted with different energy levels were analysed by a holographic procedure and by an electronic speckle pattern interferometry technique; the results obtained with the two techniques were compared with those acquired by a pulse-echo full-volume It has recently been demonstrated that eddy currents could be used for the inspection of conductive composite materials10, such as CFRP and metal–matrix composites.
In CFRPs, ECT measurements respond specifically to the carbon fibres, which make eddy currents suitable for detection of low energy impact damage, thermal damages, 66 fibre damage with or without matrix cracking, and optical wavelength interrogation system for damage de-tection in composite materials” Proc.

In this Consensus Statement, the authors assess the Ultrasound is sound waves with frequencies higher than the upper audible limit of human ound is not different from "normal" (audible) sound in its physical properties, except that humans cannot hear it.
This limit varies from person to person and is approximately 20 kilohertz (20, hertz) in healthy young adults. Ultrasound devices operate with frequencies from 20 kHz up to The experimental system mainly consists of a high energy pulse laser, a heater to heat the specimen to high temperature and an IR camera with sensitivity of K to capture thermal images.
In addition, a diffractive optical element (DOE) and a plano-convex lens (PCL) are used to split the laser beam into an array of laser ://©, 3, pages, two volumes, 6x9, hardcover • Value-adding strategies for managing SHM information and interacting with big data • Verification and certification of SHM for aircraft • Vision-based and machine-learning approaches to expand and improve SHM • Special sections on SHM in medical devices and biological systems, smart materials and sensors, condition Request PDF | OnJunghyun Wee and others published Effect of continuous optical fiber bonding on ultrasonic detection using fiber Bragg grating | Find, read and cite all the research Bi-directional ultrasonic wave coupling to FBGs in continuously bonded optical fiber sensing Article (PDF Available) in Applied Optics 56(25) September with Reads Request PDF | Detecting Ultrasound Using Optical Fibres: (Invited Paper) | Optical fibre techniques for detecting ultrasonic waves are, in principle, well established.

Damage detection of composite stiffened panels has been performed through dynamic  developed an ultrasonic signal collection system using FBGs and monitored disbond of a stringer by wavelet technology for the fast inspection of large shell structures.
For the detection of the generated ultrasonic Lamb waves and their alterations due to damage, single mode (SM) optical fibres embedded in a SMARTape and glued on a structural part or embedded in the composite have been used.
This paper presents the different ways the optical fibre Low-velocity impact damages in composite material laminates, such as matrix cracks, delaminations and fibre breakage, usually develop inside the material and can be difficult to detect.
As these flaws downgrade the structural integrity of the composite, the thorough damage evaluation is essential to assess the impact damage criticality.

As natural and man-made disasters occur, from earthquakes, tornados, and hurricanes to chemical spills and nuclear meltdowns, there is a need for field robotic systems that are able to respond in these hazardous and dangerous ://Laser-generated ultrasound is a modern non-destructive testing technique.
It has been investigated over recent years as an alternative to classical ultrasonic methods, mainly in industrial maintenance and quality control procedures. In this study, the detection and reconstruction of internal defects in a metallic sample is performed by means of a time-frequency analysis of ultrasonic waves For photoacoustic microscopy system, a widely tunable fiber laser system is designed in MOPA configuration.
