The practical implementation of Lamb-wave-based damage identification techniques in actual engineering structures often involves challenges and difficulties, and it may require comprehensive knowledge in system design, development and integration. As a result of intensive research and development in this area over the past few years and recent technical breakthroughs such as active sensor networks and high performance instruments, the practicability of Lamb-wave-based damage identification has been substantially consolidated, and some applications have attained commercial development. This chapter embraces representative deployment of such techniques in actual engineering structures, following a brief introduction to the development of systems (hardware and software) for practical implementation.
