Module summary

Most engineering structures (in aerospace, transportation, civil engineering) require reliable damage detection methods to guarantee safe operation. Structural Health Monitoring offers real-time monitoring thanks to permanently attached sensors. This interdisciplinary course discusses recent advancements in detection techniques, sensor technology, data processing and is dedicated to all engineers interested in maintenance, reliability, non-destructive testing of materials or smart structures.

Seminar classes (20h):
Structural Health Monitoring lectures

Seminars will be based on students presentations followed by critical discussions. The topics for presentations and discussions will be related to the lecture course. Students will have an opportunity to bring their own problems related to Structural Health Monitoring.

Additional information
Teaching methods and techniques:
  • Lectures: The course will involve 20 hours of lectures based on most up to date research developments and industrial case studies. Teaching by research will be the major focus of the course.
  • Seminar classes: This part of the course will involves 20 hours of seminars. The major focus will be on student presentations, analysis of literature and real engineering case studies, critical discussion.
Warunki i sposób zaliczenia poszczególnych form zajęć, w tym zasady zaliczeń poprawkowych, a także warunki dopuszczenia do egzaminu:

Course assessment will be based on seminar attendance, short report and presentation, active participation in discussions. Different topics will be selected for reports and presentations. The reports will be produced individually but presentations will be delivered by a team of maximum 2-3 students.

Participation rules in classes:
  • Lectures:
    – Attendance is mandatory: No
    – Participation rules in classes: Student's presence in lectures will not be obligatory.
  • Seminar classes:
    – Attendance is mandatory: Yes
    – Participation rules in classes: Participation in seminars will be essential for the final assessment.
Method of calculating the final grade:

The final mark will be the average mark from: (1) short report, (2) presentation and (3) active involvement in seminar discussions.

Sposób i tryb wyrównywania zaległości powstałych wskutek nieobecności studenta na zajęciach:

The delivery of reports and presentations will be obligatory. However, if – due to unexpected circumstances – - participation in seminars and delivery of reports/presentations will not be possible, the students will have an opportunity to arrange new deadlines for reports, presentations. Critical studies of selected research articles will also be possible to catch up with the course and assessment.

Prerequisites and additional requirements:

Basic A-level and undergraduate knowledge of mathematics and physics will be needed. The course is multidisciplinary and no basic knowledge is required from a specific engineering area. Students with any engineering degree and/or university degree from mathematics/physics will have a chance to complete the course.
