Paper Abstract

Structural damage identification has been continuously pursued in engineering practices to facilitate diagnosis and prognosis in structural health monitoring (SHM) systems. In SHM, the changes of modal parameters are frequently used as inputs. In this research, we employ the multiple damage location assurance criterion (MDLAC) to characterize the correlation between predictions of both frequency changes and single mode shape change with the measured data. The damage locations and severities can be obtained by maximizing the MDLAC values. Thereafter, a multi-objective optimization problem based on their MDLAC values can be formulated and optimized by applying a newly devised multi-objective DIRECT approach. The proposed approach offers practical attractions of only requiring a short amount of computational time, and the results are conclusive and repeatable.
