Paper Abstract

At Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), various algorithms for structural health monitoring problems have been explored in the last 5 to 6 years. The original DIAMOND (Damage Identification And MOdal aNalysis of Data) software was developed as a package of modal analysis tools with some frequency domain damage identification algorithms included. Since the conception of DIAMOND, the Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) paradigm at LANL has been cast in the framework of statistical pattern recognition, promoting data driven damage detection approaches. To reflect this shift and to allow user-friendly analyses of data, a new piece of software, DIAMOND II is under development. The Graphical User Interface (GUI) of the DIAMOND II software is based on the idea of GLASS (Graphical Linking and Assembly of Syntax Structure) technology, which is currently being implemented at LANL. GLASS is a Java based GUI that allows drag and drop construction of algorithms from various categories of existing functions. In the platform of the underlying GLASS technology, DIAMOND II is simply a module specifically targeting damage identification applications. Users can assemble various routines, building their own algorithms or benchmark testing different damage identification approaches without writing a single line of code.
