Detection of damage in civil engineering structures by PCA on enviromental vibration data

Risultato della ricerca: Other


The dynamic behavior of civil engineering structures are usually studied by means of ambient vibration observations and their performance is analyzed by Peak Picking and/or Operational Modal Analysis methods. This paper reports the first results of a statistical multivariate approach, specifically Principal Component Analysis, to detect a suspected structural damage on a sicilian highway bridge.Furthermore, the damage simulated in a simple structural model made it possible to understand the characteristics of the method consisting in comparing the observed data on an undamaged structure with those coming from a damaged one.
