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… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization 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 and 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.
