Project 1: Structural Health Monitoring
Problem 1: Damage detection on a steel beam
  • All data sets including the baseline and 3 unknown states will be provided
  • Identify damage existence, location and severity if possible
  • You CAN use ANY algorithm and software, not limited to the peak-picking method and IDIS
Problem 2: Monitoring of a structure of an own design
  • Make each teamís own structure using pieces of steel beams which will be provided
  • Establish monitoring strategies fit to each structure
  • Tests for the initial case
  • Introduce damages, perform vibration tests and damage identification

Project 2: Structural Control
Problem 1: Active control of smart cantilever beam (basic level)
  • Piezoceramic patches will be used on a cantilever beam for sensing and actuation
  • Strain-rate feedback (SRF) control algorithm should be used
  • SRF control algorithm can be obtained by simply modifying the PPF control algorithm which was already provided at the lab class
Problem 2: Active control of smart cantilever beam (advanced level)
  • Piezoceramic patches will be used on a cantilever beam for sensing and actuation
  • Any control algorithm can be used; neuro-control and fuzzy control are recommended
