Structural Damage Detection Based on Generalized Flexibility Matrix
Based on the generalized flexibility matrix, a method for detecting structural damage is presented in this paper. The generalized flexibility matrix is approximately constructed by using the first frequency and the corresponding mode shape only. Then the difference of generalized flexibility curvature between undamaged and damaged state is used to detect the possible damaged elements. Finally, a numerical example concerning a simple supported beam is used to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
