Abstract
The problem of detecting impacts in composite panels before and after damage is addressed in this paper. The data is taken from a simple impact experiment in which piezoceramic sensors are used to collect the impulse strain response. The data are subsequently analyzed using neural networks to predict the impact location and energy on the basis of features extracted by various pre-processing algorithms. One of the main aims of the paper is to establish if the impact location and quantification results are affected by damage to the structure.
