Abstract : Subspace methods enjoy some popularity, especially in mechanical engineering, where large model orders have to be considered. In the context of detecting changes in the structural properties and the modal parameters linked to them, some subspace based fault detection residual has been recently proposed and applied successfully. However, most works assume that the unmeasured ambient excitation level during measurements of the structure in the reference and possibly damaged condition stays constant, which is not satisfied by any application. This paper addresses the problem of robustness of such fault detection methods. An efficient subspace-based fault detection test is derived that is robust to excitation change but also to numerical instabilities that could arise easily in the computations. Furthermore, the fault detection test is extended to the Unweighted Principal Component subspace algorithm.
