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

Deployment of a distributed multi-agent architecture for transformable assembly (2018)
Conference Proceeding
Chaplin, J. C., & Ratchev, S. (2018). Deployment of a distributed multi-agent architecture for transformable assembly. In Precision assembly in the digital age, 15-28. doi:10.1007/978-3-030-05931-6_2

Industry 4.0 represents a new philosophy in manufacturing systems, based on networked, intelligent, and cooperative resources. This revolution is necessary to make the cost-effective production of batch-size-of-one customised items in high-value manu... Read More

A Bayesian time-of-flight estimation for ultrasonic damage detection (2018)
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

Small punch creep property evaluation by finite element of Kocks-Mecking-Estrin model for P91 at elevated temperature (2018)
Journal Article
