Abstract

Structural failure can be prevented if the damage in the structure is detected at its onset and appropriate retrofitting carried out. Towards this end, this paper presents a vibration-based technique, using only the first vibration mode, for predicting damage and its location and severity in steel beams that are important structural components in buildings and bridges. For single damage scenarios, the modal strain energy based damage index β was capable of detecting, locating and quantifying damage. For multiple damage scenarios, Artificial Neural Network incorporating β as the input layer was used. This research used computer simulations supported by limited experiments. Damage intensity was specified as a percentage reduction in stiffness compared to that at first yield. The procedure is illustrated through several numerical examples and the results confirm the feasibility of the method and its application in preventing structural failure.
