Surface response to excitation (SuRE) method is a low-cost alternative to electromechanical impedance based structural health monitoring (SHM) technique. The SuRE method uses one piezoelectric transducer to excite the surface of a structure with a sweep sine wave. Piezoelectric sensors or scanning laser vibrometer can be used to monitor the dynamic response of structure.
