Reconstruction Problem of Reinforced Concrete Beams under Harmonic Excitations

Abstract:

Article Preview

A damage detection method based on harmonic structural vibrations has been applied to reconstruct realistic damage patterns of reinforced concrete beams. It was shown that the application of a hybrid method (genetic algorithm and Levenberg-Marquardt minimization technique) makes it possible to effectively reconstruct the flexural stiffness drops as small as 10-20% with the maximum error of 4%. The error increases to about 7 to 9% with the presence of 1% measurement noise.
