Wavelet based damage detection in civil structures subjected to earthquake loads
During a seismic event, structural damage may result from the vibration of the structure in response to ground shaking at its foundation. The assessment of structural damage after a seismic event is required to identify ...
Evaluation of structural damage identification methods based on dynamic characteristics
In this thesis, structural damage identification methods based on changes in the dynamic characteristics of the structure are examined and new methodologies are also developed. These are based on the modal curvature matrix, ...
A computational framework for structural health monitoring of reinforced concrete structures
This research work is aimed to develop a robust Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) scheme that combines modern system identification methodologies and advanced signal processing techniques to improve the capabilities of ...
Implementation of wavelet based damage detection methods using full-scale shaking table tests data and nonlinear finite element models
Due to the scarce number of data available from instrumented buildings damaged during an earthquake, large scale shaking table tests of civil structures offer an invaluable opportunity to validate structural health monitoring ...
Experimental and numerical evaluation of wavelet based damage detection methodologies for civil infraestructure
Reduced scale models of a single span bridge, a 12 bay truss bridge, and a numerical model of a multi-story shear building were used to evaluate the capability of Wavelet Transforms for damage detection and system ...
