Laboratory for Active Materials and Smart Structures (LAMSS)

Description: The LAMSS group performs research on innovative sensor and enabling technologies for nondestructive evaluation (NDE) and structural health monitoring (SHM) of safety-critical structures. We study the multidisciplinary fields of piezoelectric wafer active sensors (PWAS), fiber Bragg grating sensors (FBG), and scanning laser Doppler vibrometry (SLDV). Our vision is to achieve integration of mechanical, electronics, and information technology into smart active “skins” and “coating” that will provide on-demand bulletins of structural health and predicted future performance.
Area: Nondestructive evaluation; Structural health monitoring; Piezoelectric wafer active sensors; Fiber Bragg grating
