Structural Health Monitoring of Military Vehicles
Berlin (DEU) on 11-12 February 2014. Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is an emerging technology, dealing with the development and implementation of techniques and systems where monitoring, inspection and damage detection become an integral part of structures and thus a matter of automation. It does further even merge with a variety of techniques being related to diagnostics and prognostics as such.
The mission of STO is to conduct and promote co-operativeresearch and information exchange. STO consists of a three levelorganization: the Science and Technology Board (STB), the Panelsand the Technical Teams. The Applied Vehicle Technology (AVT)Panel is one of the seven Panels under the STB.The Applied Vehicle Technology Panel strives to improve theperformance, affordability, and safety of vehicles throughadvancement of appropriate technologies. The Panel addressesvehicle platforms, propulsion and power systems operating in allenvironments (land, sea, air, and space), for both new and ageingsystems.To accomplish this mission, the members of the AVT communityexploit their joint expertise in the fields of:
- Mechanical systems, structures and materials;
- Propulsion and power systems;
- Performance, stability and control, fluid physics
Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is an emerging technology,dealing with the development and implementation of techniquesand systems where monitoring, inspection and damagedetection become an integral part of structures and thus amatter of automation. It does further even merge with a varietyof techniques being related to diagnostics and prognostics as such.
SHM emerged from the field of smart structures and laterallyencompasses disciplines such as structural dynamics, materialsand structures, fatigue and fracture, non-destructive testing andevaluation, sensors and actuators, microelectronics, signalprocessing and possibly much more. A multidisciplinaryapproach among these disciplines is therefore required toholistically manage the operation of an engineering structurethrough its life cycle in the future and to generate breakthroughsin structural engineering.
The objective of this lecture series is to get the experts preparedfor the European and other industries to be able to design andmanage structural health of engineering structures in the future.A matching network of experts from European universities andresearch institutions selected by their technical competence andteaching experience has prepared a lecture series, covering alltheory and techniques relevant to the understanding andhandling of SHM.
