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…

Accepted Paper: Impact location and quantification on an aluminum sandwich panel using principal component analysis and linear approximation with maximum entropy

Paper Accepted for Publication in Entropy V. Meruane, P. Véliz, E. López Droguett, A. Ortiz-Bernardin, “Impact location and quantification on an aluminum sandwich panel using principal component analysis and linear approximation with maximum entropy.” ABSTRACT To avoid structural failures it is of critical importance to detect, locate and quantify impact damage as soon as it…

Impact location and quantification on an aluminum sandwich panel using principal component analysis and linear approximation with maximum entropy

Entropy 2017, 19(4), 137 V. Meruane, P. Véliz, E. López Droguett, A. Ortiz-Bernardin Abstract To avoid structural failures it is of critical importance to detect, locate and quantify impact damage as soon as it occurs. This can be achieved by impact identification methodologies, which continuously monitor the structure, detecting, locating, and quantifying impacts as they occur….
