Paper Title:
Damage Localization of Offshore Platform Based on the Virtual Impulse Response Function
  Abstract

Because the ambient excitation is difficult to test, it is necessary to study the damage detection method only with structure responses. In this paper, two node structure responses under white noise are used to calculate the virtual impulse response function, the amplitude of the virtual impulse response function is decomposed by wavelet packet to calculate the node energy. The wavelet packet node energy change pre and post damage is used as the damage characteristic vector, and the pattern classification function of BP neural network is employed to determine the structure damage location. The numerical simulation and model experiment results of the offshore platform show the effectives of the method, whereas which is easy to be influenced by the noises.
