Abstract

Structural damage detection has been a very important issue in engineering. If damages can be detected in a timely manner, many disasters can be prevented. In recent years, wavelet transform methods and artificial neural network have been widely used in Non-Destructive Testing. The present investigation, at first the two-dimensional discrete wavelet transform method to detect the position of cracks in plate. Secondly, the artificial neural network along with the two-dimensional discrete wavelet transform method is used to identify the degree of damage in this study. During the numerical simulation, different from the previous study, only the area around a single crack is selected and used to calculated the damage indexes for a single crack on a plate. The obtained damage indexes are used as training sample for artificial neural network analysis, which then are utilized to evaluate the degree of damage of a single crack on a multiple cracks plate. In the experiment analysis, in order to eliminated the mode shapes, difference between simulations and experiments, the mode shapes of a perfect simulated plate and a plate without cracks used in experiment are studied. It is our intention to obtain more precise method to estimate the degree of damage of cracks on plate.
