Experimental Verification of the Structural Damage Identification Method Developed for Beam Structures
In this paper, an experimental verification has been conducted for a frequency response function (FRF)-based structural damage identification method (SDIM) proposed in the previous study . The FRF-based SDIM requires the natural frequencies and mode shapes measured in the intact state and the FRF-data measured in the damaged state. Experiments are conducted for the cantilevered beam specimens with one and three slots. It is shown that the proposed FRF-based SDIM provides damage identification results that agree quite well with true damage state.
