Time reversal processing for measured sensor signal can be applied to detect not only structural damage but also impact loading of the structure. In this study, a model based impact detection method for structural health monitoring is proposed. Impact identification capability of the numerical time reversal processing is demonstrated by using a rectangular aluminum plate with nine surface bonded piezoceramic sensors. Illustrative numerical simulation results indicate that the proposed method can be successfully identifying both exact impact point and time.
