Damage detection techniques have been proposed to exploit changes in modal parameters and to identify the extent and location of damage in large structures. Most of such techniques, however, generally neglect the environmental e ects on modal parameters. Such environmental e ects include changes in loads, boundary conditions, temperature, and humidity. In fact, the changes due to environmental e ects can often mask more subtle structural changes caused by damage. This paper examines a linear… CONTINUE READING
