Accepted Paper: Modal Strain Energy-Based Debonding Assessment of Sandwich Panels Using a Linear Approximation with Maximum Entropy

Paper Accepted for Publication in Entropy V. Meruane, Matias Lasen, E. López Droguett, A. Ortiz-Bernardin, “Modal strain energy-based debonding assessment of sandwich panels using a linear approximation with maximum entropy.” ABSTRACT Sandwich structures are very attractive due to their high strength at a minimum weight, and, therefore, there has been a rapid increase in their…

Modal strain energy-based debonding assessment of sandwich panels using a linear approximation with maximum entropy

Entropy 2017, 19(11), 619 V. Meruane, Matias Lasen, E. López Droguett, A. Ortiz-Bernardin Abstract Sandwich structures are very attractive due to their high strength at a minimum weight, and, therefore, there has been a rapid increase in their applications. Nevertheless, these structures may present imperfect bonding or debonding between the skins and core as a result…

A novel impact identification algorithm based on a linear approximation with maximum entropy

Smart Materials and Structures Volume 25, Issue 9, 24 August 2016, Pages 095050 N. Sanchez, V. Meruane, A. Ortiz-Bernardin Abstract This article presents a novel impact identification algorithm that uses a linear approximation handled by a statistical inference model based on the maximum-entropy principle, termed linear approximation with maximum entropy (LME). Unlike other regression algorithms…
