This paper describes the design of a multifunctional transducer for structural health monitoring (SHM) applications that integrates an interdigital piezoelectric transducer (IDT), used for Lamb Wave generation and reception, a circular piezoelectric sensor, used for the detection and localization of low-velocity impacts, and a resistance temperature detector (RTD) in a single device. The three elements were fabricated on the same metallized piezoelectric polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) film using a laser etching process. Characterization of the resulting device proved the advantages of having different transducers on the same device, providing information useful to implement advanced SHM algorithms. Testing of the RTD highlighted some criticalities of the metallized PVDF film that prevented accurate temperature measurements due to spurious behavior under strain.

Abstract

This paper describes the design of a multifunctional transducer for structural health monitoring (SHM) applications that integrates an interdigital piezoelectric transducer (IDT), used for Lamb Wave generation and reception, a circular piezoelectric sensor, used for the detection and localization of low-velocity impacts, and a resistance temperature detector (RTD) in a single device. The three elements were fabricated on the same metallized piezoelectric polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) film using a laser etching process. Characterization of the resulting device proved the advantages of having different transducers on the same device, providing information useful to implement advanced SHM algorithms. Testing of the RTD highlighted some criticalities of the metallized PVDF film that prevented accurate temperature measurements due to spurious behavior under strain.
