Abstract


Damage localization in civil or mechanical structures is a subject of active development and research. In this paper, vibration measurements and a finite element model are used to locate loss of stiffness in a steel frame structure at the University of British Columbia. Damage localization is not very well developed so far and few methods show promising properties in practice. Among them, the Stochastic Dynamic Damage Locating Vector (SDDLV) approach has interesting capabilities. In this paper, it is compared to a sensitivity based approach developed by the authors. Both approaches have in common to be built on the estimated transfer matrix difference between reference and damaged states. Both methods are tested for localization and quantification on the Yellow Frame structure at the University of British Columbia
