Stavanger University PhD Scholarship Description :
- Subject of Structural Health Monitoring ( SHM ) is emerging as an increasingly important component of overall Non – Destructive Evaluation (NDE) programs and is now being considered for implementation in a variety of University of Stavanger PhD Scholarship applications including Spacecraft Components, Oil Rigs, Wind Turbines and Aircrafts.
- Over the past several years, there have been a number of limited demonstrations of SHM in actual field University of Stavanger PhD Scholarship applications.
- Successful field implementation of SHM has not been widely achieved and depends on overcoming several roadblocks including the development of SHM methodologies and better algorithms for damage detection.
- Finite element model updating techniques are used to correct the finite element model of a structure using experimental data such that the updated model more correctly describes the dynamic properties of the structure.
- One of the University of Stavanger PhD Scholarship applications of such an updated model is to Monitor the Health of the Structure.
- The goal of the project is to develop better algorithms for detection of multiple damages in a structure.
- The work will require extensive use of MATLAB software and laboratory experiments.
