Damage Detection and Localisation Using Mode-Based Method and Perturbation Theory

Abstract : In this paper, the detection and the localization of a local perturbation are assessed by analysing the frequency changes only (fundamental mode and overtones). After describing the method used herein applied to the bending beam and based on the perturbation theory, experimental application to a 1D plexiglas beam is shown using frequency and modal analysis technique. The damage is considered as a local perturbation of Young's modulus. Finally, the localisation of damage is done using classical modal-based methods and perturbation theory. The frequency values are caught by the Random Decrement Technique applied to the time history vibrations for one sensor at the free extremity of the beam. Detection and localization are successful, even for small and transientchanges of the structure properties.
