||The LAMSS group performs research on innovative sensor and enabling technologies for
nondestructive evaluation (NDE) and structural health monitoring (SHM) of safety-critical
structures. We study the multidisciplinary fields of piezoelectric wafer active sensors
(PWAS), fiber Bragg grating sensors (FBG), and scanning laser Doppler vibrometry (SLDV).
Our vision is to achieve integration of mechanical, electronics, and information technology
into smart active “skins” and “coating” that will provide on-demand bulletins of structural
health and predicted future performance.
