Passive flaw detection and localization in thin plate from ambient noise crosscorrelation

Abstract : Passive structural health monitoring (SHM) is an emerging technology. More than 10 years ago, it has been shown that transient response between two sensors can be passively estimated from cross-correlation of ambient noise. The work presented here is an experimental application of this approach dedicated to detect the occurrence of flaws on a thin aluminum plate. The detection sensitivity is directly related to the fidelity of the estimation of the transient response. Using a laser vibrometer, we show that it strongly depends on the number of uncorrelated noise sources. An artificial damage is detected from the difference between the cross-correlation matrices measured before and after defect appearance. To localize the defect, a beamforming array processing is applied on the matrix. The resolution can be as small as half a wavelength.
