Vibration–Based Structural Damage Detection and Precise Assessment via Stochastic Functionally Pooled Models

Abstract:

Article Preview

This work aims at the precise assessment of a recently introduced method that, in addition to damage detection, allows for complete and accurate damage identification (localization) and magnitude estimation. The method is based on Vector–dependent Functionally Pooled (VFP) models and is capable of offering an effective and precise solution in a unified framework. The effectiveness of the method is experimentally assessed via its application to a prototype GARTEURtype laboratory scale aircraft structure.
