Video Now Available – PEER Seminar Series: Structural Health Monitoring with Application to Aeronautic Nacelles

This talk focused on Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) systems for complex composite structures with an application to elements of aeronautical nacelles. The challenge addressed in this talk is to develop and validate an SHM system able to detect and localize these damages before the degradation of the whole structure occurs, and independently of the ambient temperature.

Nazih Mechbal, Associate Professor, PIMM – ENSAM/CNRS/CNAM. Professor Mechbal is at the laboratory of Processes and Engineering in Mechanics and Materials (PIMM/UMR CNRS/CNAM) at the engineering school Arts et Métiers ParisTech (ENSAM) of Paris, where he is a member of the Dynamic, Systems and Control Group (DYSCO). He received his PhD degree in robotics from ENSAM in 1999. His research interests are in the development and application of theoretical methods of automatic control and signal processing to mechanical structures, and more specifically to smart structures which include structural control, structural health monitoring, diagnosis and robotics. He has conducted and coordinated several projects and PhD theses with industrial partners.

Marc Rébillat, Associate Professor, PIMM – ENSAM/CNRS/CNAM. Professor Rébillat was hired as an associate professor within the DYSCO team at PIMM in September 2012 after his PhD thesis was awarded the Rocard Prize from the French Acoustical Society (SFA). His research deals with the formalization of Parallel Hammerstein nonlinear models identification methods and of their use for structural health monitoring purposes, under the assumption that damages generate dynamical nonlinearities. He also has activities related to the dynamical behavior of large structures equipped with electrodynamical or piezo-electric transducers with applications to audio and ultrasonic acoustics.
