Article Preview

The paper chose a three-span continuous steel box girder bridge with horizontal semicircular surface cracks as research object, and the cracks are non-through and unsymmetrical. Solving strain modal parameters of beams with cracks by means of the three-dimensional finite element theory, and applying continuous wavelet transform (CWT) to analyze the strain mode by Haar wavelet, then the position of the cracks could be identified by the maximum of wavelet coefficients. The validity of the method has been proved by numerical calculation and analysis. Some useful conclusions for continuous steel girders bridge have been drawn and it has been useful in surface flaw identification and diagnosis in structures.
