Damage Detection by the Use of Wavelet


Article Preview

Detection and identification of structural damage at the earliest possible stage is a vital part of the monitoring and servicing of structural during their lifetime. In this paper, damage monitoring is studied on some kinds of structures use wavelet analysis, such as plate, and framework. The research shows this damage detection technique is made to determine the damage occurring time, positions and degrees and to realize an early discovery and diagnosis on the damage, which offers a basis for realizing lifespan prediction of the structure and ensuring safety of engineering structure.
