Offer Description

JOB DESCRIPTION: the researcher involved in the Project will take part in theoretical – analytical and numerical – and experimental works related to the design of piezoelectric sensors, analysis of their arrangement and optimization for obtaining best detection capabilities of the system. The particular sensors developed and used in the Project will be interdigital transducers (IDT). These have very important features in terms of their application to SHM, including small size and mass with negligible effect on the investigated structure as well as conformity to the investigated structure, especially to curved surfaces. The use of macro fiber piezocomposite (MFC) enables mode selectivity for the excitation of the most suitable for damage detection wave modes as well as directivity pattern providing sensitivity to certain regions of interest (hot spots), and a relatively low price. The researcher will work on the design of sparse arrays of the IDT sensors, and the design and application of tailored topologies by means of advanced optimization algorithms. He/she will use hybrid topological optimization schemes (based on a combination of genetic and deterministic methods) for the transducer design and for determining optimal sensor placement for a specific application. The IDT will be provided in tuning mode enabling their adaptation to specific structure and material conditions. Behavior of the digitally optimized prototype IDTs will be experimentally evaluated in parent composite structures using advanced laser vibrometer systems.
