heal.abstract There is a plethora of signal processing transforms ranging from the classical FFT to the very popular wavelet transform used for modal analysis and damage detection in structures. These transforms operate on a signal at a time. But in practice a set of signals is usually available (network of sensors). To detect the modal properties of a structure from a given spatially distributed set of time series, the whole information must be somehow fused. Time and space auto-correlations are fundamental operations that correlate or fuse distributed (spatio-temporal) data: they give rise to the Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) Transform. Originally introduced to study turbulence dynamics in fluids and in general stochastic processes, the POD transform has been advanced into a powerful data processing tool especially for vibration and wave analysis of nonlinear structures with multi-field response. In this work, we present a novel application of the multi-field POD transform for signal processing. In particular, POD is applied to transform a set of time series recorded by a single tri-axial accelerometer at a fixed point as an impact force ranges over a grid of locations. The technique was applied to study the impact response of a canister-like composite structure: The POD transform reveals that the autocorrelation energy is distributed almost exponentially over a small set of POD modes. The distribution of the POD spectrum is robust but the shapes of the POD modes are sensitive to small changes in initial conditions and imperfections. These features seem to be promising indicators for damage location and damage quantification. en
