Damage Assessment of a Cracked Bar: Effect of Material Nonlinearity on Vibro-Impact Response
Structural health monitoring is receiving much attention as a means to prevent catastrophic failure in structures in operating conditions. In most cases fracture is caused by the growth of crack, which cannot be precluded in many engineering structures. Moreover, to have an accurate quantitative estimate of crack tolerance of a structure to prevent fracture of load bearing components, an effective non-destructive evaluation procedure becomes necessary to monitor the structure under working conditions.
