Abstract: The objective of this study is to show the potential of the crack detection method based on Wavelet Packet Transform (WPT), which is depending on the response at a single point on a beam subject to moving load. In this paper, an ANSYS model of a cracked beam is established. The moving load is transient analyzed by shifting the point of the concentrated force. The response at mid-span of the beam is calculated and wavelet packet transformed. The crack on the beam can be found by the abnormal signal in WPT branc…
