Paper Abstract

A damage detection method utilizing Support Vector Machine (SVM) for bending structures is proposed. The SVM was recently proposed as a new technique for pattern recognition. The SVM is a powerful pattern recognition tool applicable to complicated classification problems and is effectively utilized in the method. Based on the modal frequency changes, the damage location and its severity are defined by the SVM. In our previous studies, it was shown that our proposed method worked very well for structures modeled by shear frames. However, this modeling is only appropriate for low-rise building structures and is not appropriate for tall buildings. Therefore, it is our purpose here to extend the method to bending frames that are appropriate models for tall buildings. In the analytical evaluation, we constructed the finite element models to represent bending structures. Then, we conducted a series of experiments for verification. We could show that the damage detection method using SVM was also possible and effective for bending structures.
