Damage Detection of Masonry Columns Using Modal Analysis
The paper is focused on damage detection of brick columns using the non-destructive method - modal analysis. The four brick columns, each made from four bricks and mortar, were tested. The two of them were made using one type of mortar and the second two using another type. The differences in the dynamic behavior were investigated using multi reference modal analysis. Conclusion summarizes the comparison of dynamic behavior of columns and damage detection in some of them.
