The GW4SHM project, funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Network (H2020-MSCA-ITN-2019-860104), aims at different aspects of Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) using Guided Ultrasonic Waves (GUW). SHM enables continuous evaluation of changes and facilitate early detection of faults before expensive or critical damage occurs. Guided wave-based SHM detects abnormalities via changes in the propagation of GUW through structures. Although promising, it is not widely used yet in industrial settings. The project brings together partners from academia and industry to train a new generation of researchers skilled in all aspects of SHM, enabling them to transform SHM research into practical applications. Focusing on aeronautics, petrochemistry and the automotive sector as initial pilot cases, we will develop SHM-concepts to assess the integrity of structures and create ready-to-use tools for industry and other SHM users. The strong collaboration between mathematicians, physicists and engineers aims to bring the capabilities and applicability of SHM methods to the next level. The outcome of the project will pave the way for integrating SHM into real-world engineering structures.
