Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2020) | Viewed by 3290
Interests: optical measurement techniques; optical metrology; laser Doppler vibrometry; optical fiber sensors; digital image correlation; machine vision; non-destructive testing
Interests: smart sensors and nondestructive methodologies (ultrasonics, acoustic emission, acoustic microscopy, nonlinear acoustics) for real-time evaluation of damage in metallic alloys; coatings; metal and ceramic matrix composites; smart and multi-functional materials; nanocomposites; phononic metamaterials; cementitious materials; life prediction of aging structures; structural health monitoring in aerospace, energy, civil and cultural heritage applications
The ability to detect damage to components or infrastructure at an early stage is essential in many application fields, including aeronautics, wind turbines, bridges, etc.
In the last decades, full-field optical measurement techniques have emerged. Full-field vibration measurement techniques like laser vibrometry, holography, shearography or digital image correlation are used to detect, locate and quantify damage through the high spatial resolution measurement data they deliver. These methods are used detect cracks, delaminations and wear in several types of materials. Camera-based techniques like infrared thermography and non-destructive testing are also used to detect other types of damage like corrosion, coating degradation, etc.
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide an overview of the state-of-the-art of the capabilities and limitations of optical measurement techniques for damage detection.
Both review articles and papers relating to the application of full-field optical measurement techniques for damage detection and/or damage assessment are solicited. Papers on innovative optical measurement techniques, optimized measurement set-ups, pre- and post-processing methods and novel detection techniques are also welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
