Abstract

Results of modeling of the wave propagation, impact, and damage detection in a sandwich honeycomb plate using piezoelectric actuator/sensor scheme are reported. A finite element model of honeycomb sandwich panel that reproduces accurately experimental setup and takes into account main characteristic features of the real composite panel, impactor, lead zirconate titanate actuator, and sensors is developed. The impact is simulated to obtain damage with parameters close to those observed in the experiment. Both in simulations and in experiment, the voltage signal of a given shape is applied to the lead zirconate titanate actuators to excite acoustic wave, and the electrical signals collected from the lead zirconate titanate sensors mounted to the panel are used to study wave propagation in the sandwich panel. The results of simulation are shown to be in good agreement with the experimental results both before and after the impact. Properties of acoustic wave propagating in composite sandwich honeycomb panels are discussed.
