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… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
