It is imperative to periodically assess or continually monitor the integrity of infrastructure that is safety or mission critical, or to initiate repairs in a timely and economical manner. Monitoring changes in vibration and wave propagation characteristics is an attractive solution since information can often be gleaned from sensors that are positioned remotely from any incipient damage. Recent and ongoing research in the Dynamics Group exploits waves and vibration to identify damage to piping networks, aircraft, reinforced concrete and rotating machinery. The effects are also being studied of transport induced vibration on museum artefacts and liquid medicines.
