Abstract: A novel sensor placement criterion is proposed for structural health monitoring after five influencing criteria are critically reviewed. The objective of the proposed criterion is to achieve best identification of modal frequencies and mode shapes through almost unbiased estimation of modal coordinates. The proposed criterion derived by the Representative Least Squares method depends on both the characteristics and the actual loading situations of a structure. It selects sensor positions with the best subspace…
