Journal Article
Cantero-Chinchilla, S., Chiachío, J., Chiachío, M., Chronopoulos, D., & Jones, A. (2020). Optimal sensor configuration for ultrasonic guided-wave inspection based on value of information. Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing, 135, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ymssp.2019.106377

Condition-based maintenance critically relies on efficient and reliable structural health monitoring systems, where the number, position and type of sensors are determined according to rational and principled criteria. This paper proposes the use of... Read More about Optimal sensor configuration for ultrasonic guided-wave inspection based on value of information.

Uncertainty quantification in ultrasonic guided-waves based damage localization (2019)
Conference Proceeding
Cantero-Chinchilla, S., Chiachío, J., Chiachío, M., Chronopoulos, D., Jones, A., Essa, Y., & Martín De La Escalera, F. (2019). Uncertainty quantification in ultrasonic guided-waves based damage localization

Bayesian methods for inverse problems offer higher robustness to noise and uncertainty than deterministic, yet accurate, inference methods. Both types of techniques typically focus on finding optimal model parameters that minimize an objective functi...

A continuum damage model for transverse cracking in UD composites of linear viscoelastic behaviour (2019)
Journal Article
Xu, F., Jones, I. A., & Li, S. (2019). A continuum damage model for transverse cracking in UD composites of linear viscoelastic behaviour. Composite Structures, 225, doi:10.1016/j.compstruct.2019.03.084

A damage model for linear viscoelastic unidirectional (UD) composites undergoing transverse matrix cracking is proposed. The damage representation for the corresponding elastic UD composite with an array of dispersed matrix cracks was derived from Li...

Conference Proceeding
Cantero-Chinchilla, S., Chiachío-Ruano, J., Chiachío-Ruano, M., Jones, A., Essa, Y., & Martín de la Escalera, F. (2018). A Bayesian time-of-flight estimation for ultrasonic damage detection

SHM methods for damage detection and localisation in plate-like structures have typically relied on post-processing of ultrasonic guided waves (GWs) features. The time-of-flight is one of these features, which has been extensively used by the SHM com... Read More about A Bayesian time-of-flight estimation for ultrasonic damage detection.
