Structural Health Monitoring
Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) efforts
in the Aerospace Structures Section
are focused on developing practical SHM applications to real world aircraft problems using the latest sensor
technology developed at SwRI or that are commercially available. We are developing our own Reasoners to provide
continuous monitoring of critical structural areas, comparing expected damage with real time measured damage.
Our goal is to provide the user/maintainer with real time structural health assessments and projected maintenance needs.
