Abstract: In recent years,most existing engineering structures which have approached their normal life span, such as concrete plate, concrete beam etc., Almost all of these architecture structures are subjected to damage due to external loads, initial design defect etc. Structural damage detection and assessment has been becoming a focus of increasing interest in civil engineering field. However,At present, the study on structural damage detection is still at initial stage and the adopted main approaches are theoretical analysis and numerical simulation, but physical models are scarce. This leads to the yielded theories and methods are not sufficiently applicable for practical engineering application. Aiming at this, this paper focuses on developing effective methods of using wavelet and neural networks to detect the damage of elastic thin plate due to their extensive applications in civil engineering.

Abstract: Two-dimensional elastic thin plates are widely used in civil engineering structures. The plates deteriorate gradually under service conditions, which influence the safety of engineering structures. How to identify the damage of the plate is one of the hot issues in the civil engineering fields. The relevant theoretical analysis and numerical simulation are stressed, but the physical model experiments are few. There are some problems among the theory, methods and practical engineering applications. A method is presented for determining damage location and degree of civil engineering structures based on model testing of two-dimensional steel plates.

Abstract: Three corrosion degrees of reinforcement are chosen in this paper, which are considered to simulate minor, medium and severe degrees of corrosion in this field. A reinforcement mass loss about 5% is used to define a minor degree of corrosion, whereas mass losses about 10% and 20% are used to define medium and severe degree of corrosion, respectively. Fifteen specimens of the three corrosion degrees and seven uncorroded specimens are tested under fatigue. According to the results of the fatigue tests, using stress range as fatigue parameter and 50% as guaranteed probability, the fatigue S-N curves of the four different corrosion degrees of deformed reinforcement adaptable for fatigue reliability evaluation are put forward. These curves provide necessary principle for predicting the residual fatigue lives of aged existing reinforced concrete bridges.
