Ultrasonic non-destructive testing signal can be decomposed into a set of chirplet signals, which makes the chirplet transform a fitting ultrasonic signal analysis and processing method. Moreover, compared to wavelet transform, short-time Fourier transform and Gabor transform, chirplet transform is a comprehensive signal approximation method, nevertheless, the former methods gained more popularity in the ultrasonic signal processing research. In this paper, the principles of the chirplet transform are explained with a simplified presentation and the studies that used the transform in ultrasonic non-destructive testing and in structural health monitoring are reviewed to expose the existing applications and motivate the research in the potential ones.
