Paper Title:
Electro-Mechanical Admittance-Based Damage Detection Using Extreme Value Statistics
  Abstract

This paper presents the use of statistically rigorous algorithms combined with electromechanical (E/M) impedance approach for health monitoring of engineering structures. In particular, a statistical pattern recognition procedure is developed, based on frequency domain data of electromechanical impedance, to establish a decision boundary for damage identification. In order to diagnose damage with statistical confidence, health monitoring is cast in the context of outlier detection framework. Inappropriate modeling of tail distribution of outliers imposes potentially misleading behavior associated with damage. The present paper attempts to address the problem of establishing decision boundaries based on extreme value statistics so that the extreme values of outliers associated with tail distribution can be properly modeled. The validity of the proposed method is demonstrated using finite element method (FEM) simulated data while a comparison is performed for the extreme value analysis results contrasted with the standard approach where it is assumed that the damage-sensitive features are normally distributed.
