This paper presents guided waves based damage detection by using a hybrid PZT actuator and optic fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensors. In the hybrid sensing, a piezoelectric wafer (PZT) is used to generate incident guided waves based on the piezoelectric principle. Meanwhile, multiple fiber Bragg grating sensors (FBG) are adopted as receivers to measure the high-frequency small-strain guided waves base on the full width half maximum (FWHM) principle. If the inspected structure has damage such as hole, crack and notch, the incident guided waves will be reflected or scattered by the damage. Through multiple FBG sensors at different locations, the damage induced waves can be acquired and further processed for damage detection. In this research, two configurations are explored, the rosette and line arrangements of multiple sensors. The sensing and wave source localization on aluminum plate are demonstrated. The results show that wave source can be successfully detected by using both the FBG rosette and the FBG array.
