Paper Abstract

We propose a damage detection method based on frequency responses measured by FBG sensors during vibration tests. When random noise vibrates a laminated composite panel and a stiffener fastened with bolts, the peak gain of the resonance frequencies can be obtained. We calculated the correlation coefficient of the normalized gain for the frequency responses, and then predicted the location of a missing bolt. This method will make possible to predict the location of damage with a limited number of FBG sensors while a structure is vibrating even if the excitation point changes.
