A Summary Review of Vibration-based Damage Identification Methods

  title={A Summary Review of Vibration-based Damage Identification Methods},
  author={Scott W. Doebling and Charles R. Farrar and Michael B. Prime},
This paper provides an overview of methods to detect, locate, and characterize damage in structural and mechanical systems by examining changes in measured vibration response. Research in vibration-based damage identification has been rapidly expanding over the last few years. The basic idea behind this technology is that modal parameters (notably frequencies, mode shapes, and modal damping) are functions of the physical properties of the structure (mass, damping, and stiffness). Therefore… CONTINUE READING
