Paper Abstract

In this paper, taking the cantilever beams as example, a novel and simple damage localization approach is proposed: the Curvature Difference Probability Method of Waveform Logarithms of Standard Deviation (CDPWLSD). Firstly, the feature, the common Logarithms of Standard Deviation (LSD) for the response signals before and after damage should be computed at every measured node. Then, the curvature changes of the waveform LSD are selected as candidates for the potentially damaged locations. Lastly, the probability of every potentially damaged element presenting in multiple identifications is considered to determine the finally damaged elements. Numerical results of both single and multiple damage cases show that the proposed approach can be used to locate damage very well. And it is still effective even if the noise level is up to 15%.
