Effect of Attribute Reduction on Rough-Probabilistic Neural Network for Structural Damage Detection
In this paper, a new rough-probabilistic neural network (RSPNN) model, whereby rough set data and a probabilistic neural network (PNN) are integrated, is proposed. This model is used for structural damage detection, particularly for cases where the measurement data has many uncertainties. To verify the proposed method, an example is presented to identify both single and multi-damage case patterns. The effects of measurement noise and attribute reduction on the damage detection results are also discussed. The results show that the proposed model not only has good damage detection capability and noise tolerance, but also reduces data storage memory requirements.
