DAMAGE DETECTION IN BEAM STRUCTURES BASED ON FREQUENCY MEASUREMENTS

- F. Vestroni, D. Capecchi
- Mathematics
- 1 July 2000

Damage detection in vibrating beams, or beam systems, is dealt with in this paper. Damage is represented by a more or less concentrated decrease in stiffness. A linear behavior is assumed before and… Expand

Damage Evaluation in Cracked Vibrating Beams Using Experimental Frequencies and Finite Element Models

- F. Vestroni, D. Capecchi
- Engineering
- 1 January 1996

The paper focuses on the problem of locating and quantifying damage in vibrating beams due to cracks. The problem is shown to have certain peculiarities that, to some extent, make it easier to solve… Expand

Periodic response of a class of hysteretic oscillators

- D. Capecchi, F. Vestroni
- Mathematics
- 1990

Abstract Steady-state oscillations of hysteretic systems are studied by referring to a class of oscillators that are simple but representative of the various models introduced to describe material… Expand

Steady‐State Dynamic Analysis of Hysteretic Systems

- D. Capecchi, F. Vestroni
- Mathematics
- 1 December 1985

A great many hysteretic models have been recently introduced in the analysis of dynamic behavior of structures and structural elements. This paper considers the steady‐state oscillations of… Expand

Motion of a rigid body with a rounded base due to harmonic excitation

- D. Capecchi, R. Giannini, R. Masiani
- Mathematics
- 1 March 1996

The asymptotic response of a rigid block to harmonic force is very rich and well worth studying, for both theoretical and technical reasons. The present study is motivated partly by the possibility… Expand

Damage identification in a parabolic arch by means of natural frequencies, modal shapes and curvatures

- D. Capecchi, J. Ciambella, A. Pau, F. Vestroni
- Mathematics
- 10 August 2016

This paper investigates damage identification techniques based on the difference of modal frequencies, shapes and curvatures in the damaged and undamaged states of the structure. The sensitivity of… Expand

Reduced phase space analysis for hysteretic oscillators of masing type

- D. Capecchi, R. Masiani
- Mathematics
- 1 October 1996

Abstract Hysteretic oscillators can be represented as dynamic systems provided a high dimension phase space is considered. It is shown that for a fairly large class of oscillators, based on Masing… Expand

Piola’s contribution to continuum mechanics

- D. Capecchi, G. Ruta
- Mathematics
- 23 March 2007

This paper examines the contribution of Gabrio Piola to continuum mechanics.Though he was undoubtably a skilled mathematician and a good mechanician, little is commonly known about his papers within… Expand

The Theory of Elasticity in the 19th Century

- D. Capecchi, G. Ruta
- Physics
- 2015

Until 1820 there was a limited knowledge about the elastic behavior of materials: one had an inadequate theory of bending, a wrong theory of torsion, the definition of Young’s modulus. Studies were… Expand

Voigt and Poincaré’s mechanistic–energetic approaches to linear elasticity and suggestions for multiscale modelling

- D. Capecchi, G. Ruta, P. Trovalusci
- Mathematics
- 30 January 2011

Many modern theories for “complex” materials rely on the construction of specific potentials for inner actions by resorting to mechanistic/corpuscular descriptions of the matter at different length… Expand
