Paper Title:
Damage Detection in Circular Cylindrical Shells by Frequency Sensitivities and Mode Shapes
  Abstract

In the present paper, the Damage Location Assurance Criterion (DLAC) is extended to locate and assess damage in a circular cylindrical shell based on natural frequencies and mode shapes. Frequency sensitivities computed from a defect-free finite element model are applied to calculate the theoretical frequency changes. The axial position of the damage can be easily obtained by comparing the theoretical and measured frequency changes due to damage. For the shell is axisymmetric, additional information of mode shapes is introduced to locate the exact damage position. The damage extent can be estimated by the first order approximation method. The feasibility and practicality of the damage detection scheme are evaluated for several damage scenarios by locating and sizing damage in the free–free, simply-supported and free-clamped shells, respectively. Results from simulation examples show that the proposed detection scheme can confidently locate the single or multiple positions of damage. It is also observed that damage extent can be estimated with a relatively small error.
