The health status and state prediction of key engineering structures, which generally have complex geometries, are vital to the safety of important equipment. The ongoing development of nondestructive sensing technologies (including magnetic sensors, optical sensors, and vibrational sensors) and state prediction technologies (such as AI algorithms) help realize the monitoring and evaluation of health structures. With the emergence of new materials (e.g., composite and flexible materials), new manufacturing technologies (e.g., additive manufacturing), and new applications (e.g., deformable structures and multi-scale structures), the research of related technologies has become a hot spot.
This Special Issue seeks to gather the latest developments in nondestructive health monitoring technologies and new processing methods for the state prediction of the complex engineering structure. This Special Issue will cover, but not be limited to, the following areas:
- Quality evaluation of ferromagnetic material additive manufacturing;
- Quality and health evaluation of ferromagnetic alloyed weld;
- AI algorithms in structural health monitoring and state prediction;
- Digital twin technologies;
- Advanced system design and signal processing;
- Robot carried automated NDT system;
- Structural health monitoring of carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP);
- Visualization and interpretation of structural health monitoring data.

Abstract: Damage localization method of composite materials is a hot research topic at present. One of the development directions is to locate the damage without knowing material properties. However, there are few algorithms in this area, and the localization performance needs further study. In this paper, the localization performance of the time difference blind localization method which utilizes six sensors to locate the acoustic emission source in composite material plate without knowing the wave velocity is studied. The influence on localization performance of three pa-rameters such as the distance between the sensor and the acoustic emission source, sensor spac-ing and the material anisotropy are discussed. The reason for the error of the time difference blind localization method is analyzed. The analysis results are verified by simulation and ex-periment. The results show that the error of this method will be large when the acoustic emis-sion velocity of the composite material in different directions differs greatly. Reducing the sen-sor spacing and the distance between the sensor and the acoustic emission source will reduce the error.
