Research on Structural Damage Localization by Improved Curvature Method

Abstract:

Article Preview

Damage identification is one of the main contents of structural health condition assessment. Curvature mode is an ideal method to identify structural damage location, with advantages of easy to be operated and sensitive to local damage, while the frequency is easy to test with high precision. An improved structural damage identification method is presented, which combines curvature and frequency. Finally, the improved method presented herein is verified by a simple support steel beam tested in laboratory. The results show that the improved method can effectively identify structural damage location.
