Author Affiliations +
Ultrasonic wave based structural health monitoring (SHM) is an innovative method for nondestructive detection and an area of growing interest. This is due to high demands for wireless detection in the field of structural engineering. Through optically exciting and detecting ultrasonic waves, electrical wire connections can be avoided, and non-contact SHM can be achieved. With the combination of piezoelectric transducer (PZT) (which possesses high heat resistance) and the noncontact detection, this system has a broad range of applications, even in extreme conditions. This paper reports an all-optically driven SHM system. The resonant frequencies of the PZT transducers are sensitive to a variety of structural damages. Experimental results have verified the feasibility of the all-optically driven SHM system.
