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... Read More

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... Read More

A robust Bayesian methodology for damage localization in plate-like structures using ultrasonic guided-waves (2018)
Journal Article
Cantero-Chinchilla, S., Chiachío, M., Chiachío, J., Chronopoulos, D., & Jones, A. (2019). A robust Bayesian methodology for damage localization in plate-like structures using ultrasonic guided-waves. Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing, 122, 192-205. doi:10.1016/j.ymssp.2018.12.021

SHM methods for damage detection and localization in plate-like structures have typically relied on signal post-processing techniques applied to ultrasonic guided-waves. The time of flight is one of these signals features which has been extensively u... Read More

Small punch creep property evaluation by finite element of Kocks-Mecking-Estrin model for P91 at elevated temperature (2018)
Journal Article
Al-Abedy, H., Jones, A., & Sun, W. (2018). Small punch creep property evaluation by finite element of Kocks-Mecking-Estrin model for P91 at elevated temperature. Theoretical and Applied Fracture Mechanics, 98, 244-254. doi:10.1016/j.tafmec.2018.10.006

Small punch creep testing (SPCT) of thin disc specimens can be considered as a useful technique for determination of creep properties of exposed components of power generation and other thermal structures. Large viscoplastic strain in materials leads... Read More

Lamb wave-based damage indicator for plate-like structures (2018)
Journal Article
Cantero-Chinchilla, S., Chiachío-Ruano, J., Chiachío-Ruano, M., Etxaniz, J., Aranguren, G., Jones, A., …Martin De La Escalera, F. (2018). Lamb wave-based damage indicator for plate-like structures. European Conference of the Prognostics and Health Management Society, 4(1),

Structural health monitoring based on ultrasonics typically involves complex data analysis. Ultrasound monitoring based on Lamb waves techniques are extensively used nowadays due to their efficiency in exploring large areas with relatively small atte... Read More
