Abstract: The aim of the work is to develop a procedure allowing the test engineer to determine the probability of finding a crack in a beam structure. The procedure is based on the use of wavelet analysis and the simulation is performed by taking advantage of spectral elements to represent accurately the dynamic behaviour of beam structures in the high frequency range. In this context, numerical analyses are performed with the final scope of simulating a real testing environment: measurement error is considered and spe…
