Abstract: For detection of damage in frame and truss structures, the normalized cumulative energy is proposed as the identification parameter within the framework of the damage locating vector (DLV) method. Due to the limited number of sensors used, it is necessary to filter out the actual damaged elements from the identified set of potential damaged elements. An intersection scheme using only the measured signals is proposed for the filtering and verified using a warehouse frame comprising truss, beam and column elemen…
