Study on the Method of the Damage Identification for Frame Structure


Article Preview

First order iterative algorithm, mixed iterative algorithm, structural damage identification using static and dynamic data were put forward. The first and second order sensitivity matrixes of modal parameters that respect to the damage member were derived, and the modal truncation error which produced during the derivation of modal mode sensitivity was improved. The first and second order sensitivity equations were established respectively based on the principle of Taylor series expansion. And the solving method of these sensitivity equations was studied. Mixed iterative algorithm took up the second order nonlinear analytical solution as the first substituting value, and then the first substituting value was modified based on the Taylor series bias error using the solution of the first order sensitivity equation. It showed that the mixed iterative algorithm in this paper had a better convergence and a faster iteration speed because the higher precision second order nonlinear analytical solution was adopted. Because the method using static and dynamic data combined the static information and dynamic information of the structure, it could react the inside information of the structure more comprehensively, the result of damage identification was more accurate and it would be adapted more widely.
