    Abstract Timely detection and elimination of damage in areas with excessive vehicle loading can reduce the risk of road accidents. Currently, various methods of photo and video surveillance are used to monitor the condition of the road surface. The manual approach to evaluation and analysis of the received data can take a protracted period of time. Thus, it is necessary to improve the procedures for inspection and assessment of the condition of control objects with the help of computer vision and deep learning techniques. In this paper, we propose a model based on Mask Region-based Convolutional Neural Network (Mask R-CNN) architecture… More >

    Tareq Al-hababi1,2, Nizar Faisal Alkayem1,3, Li Cui4, Shixiang Zhang5, Cong Liu6, Maosen Cao1,2,*

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.16, No.1, pp. 15-35, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.020418

    Abstract A significant amount of research is concerned with dynamic modal parameters for damage detection of structural conditions due to their simplicity in use and feasibility. However, their use for damage detection should be performed with special attention, particularly in operational and environmental conditions subjected to temperature changes. Beams in construction industries experience different loading types, such as temperature changes leading to crack initiation and propagation. Changed physical and dynamic properties such as natural frequencies and mode shapes indicate that damage has occurred within the structures. In this study, vibration analysis of cantilever and cantilever simply supported beams has been carried… More >

    Fatigue Crack Detection in Steel Plates Using Guided Waves and an Energy-Based Imaging Approach

    Mingyu Lu1,*, Kaige Zhu1, Qiang Wang2

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.15, No.3, pp. 207-225, 2021, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2021.017720

    Abstract The increasing use of ultrasonic guided waves (GWs) has been shown to have great potential for the detection of fatigue cracks and non-fatigue type damages in metallic structures. This paper reports on a study demonstrating an energy-based damage imaging approach in which signal characteristics identified through relative time differences by fatigue crack (RTD/f) through different sensor paths are used to estimate the location of fatigue crack in steel plates based on GWs generated by an active piezoceramic transducer (PZT) network. The propagation of GWs in the original 10 mm-thick plate was complicated due to its thick geometry, wave dispersion, boundary… More >

    Damage Detection in CFST Column by Simulation of Ultrasonic Waves Using STFT-Based Spectrogram and Welch Power Spectral Density Estimate

    Nadom K. Mutlib1,*, Muna N. Ismael1, Shahrizan Baharom2

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.15, No.3, pp. 227-246, 2021, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2021.010725

    Abstract Structural health monitoring employs different tools and techniques to provide a prediction for damages that occur in various structures. Damages such as debond and cracks in concrete-filled steel tube column (CFST) are serious defects that threaten the integrity of the structural members. Ultrasonic waves monitoring applied to the CFST column is necessary to detect damages and quantify their size. However, without appropriate signal processing tools, the results of the monitoring process could not be crucial. In this research, a monitoring process based on a Multiphysics numerical simulation study was carried out. Two signal processing tools: short time Fourier transform (STFT)… More >

    Anshul Sharma1,*, Pardeep Kumar1, Hemant Kumar Vinayak2, Suresh Kumar Walia3

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.15, No.2, pp. 139-165, 2021, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2021.012316

    Abstract This study is concerned with the diagnosis of discrepancies in a steel truss bridge by identifying dynamic properties from the vibration response signals of the bridges. The vibration response signals collected at bridges under three different vehicular speeds of 10 km/hr, 20 km/hr, and 30 km/hr are analyzed using statistical features such as kurtosis, magnitude of peak-to-peak, root mean square, crest factor as well as impulse factor in time domain, and Stockwell transform in the time-frequency domain. The considered statistical features except for kurtosis show uncertain behavior. The Stockwell transform showed low-resolution outcomes when the presence of noise in the… More >

    Guided Wave Based Damage Detection Method for Aircraft Composite Structures under Varying Temperatures

    Dongyue Gao1, Yunlong Ma2, Zhanjun Wu3,*, Yuebin Zheng3, Hongbo Lu1

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.15, No.1, pp. 23-37, 2021, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2021.013737

    Abstract Guided waves based damage detection methods using base signals offer the advantages of simplicity of signal generation and reception, sensitivity to damage, and large area coverage; however, applications of the technology are limited by the sensitivity to environmental temperature variations. In this paper, a Spearman Damage Index-based damage diagnosis method for structural health condition monitoring under varying temperatures is presented. First, a PZT sensor-based Guided wave propagation model is proposed and employed to analyze the temperature effect. The result of the analysis shows the wave speed of the Guided wave signal has higher temperature sensitivity than the signal fluctuation features.… More >

    Damage Detection for CFRP Based on Planar Electrical Capacitance Tomography

    Wenru Fan, Chi Wang*

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.14, No.4, pp. 303-314, 2020, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2020.011009

    Abstract Due to the widespread use of carbon fiber reinforced polymer/plastic (CFRP), the nondestructive structural health monitoring for CFRP is playing an increasingly essential role. As a nonradiative, noninvasive and nondestructive detection technique, planar electrical capacitance tomography (PECT) electrodes array is employed in this paper to reconstruct the damage image according to the calculated dielectric constant changes. The shape and duty ratio of PECT electrodes are optimized according to the relations between sensitivity distribution and the dielectric constant of different anisotropic degrees. The sensitivity matrix of optimized PECT sensor is more uniform as the result shows, because the sensitivity of insensitivity… More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.65, No.3, pp. 2201-2215, 2020, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2020.011191

    Abstract Automatic road damage detection using image processing is an important aspect of road maintenance. It is also a challenging problem due to the inhomogeneity of road damage and complicated background in the road images. In recent years, deep convolutional neural network based methods have been used to address the challenges of road damage detection and classification. In this paper, we propose a new approach to address those challenges. This approach uses densely connected convolution networks as the backbone of the Mask R-CNN to effectively extract image feature, a feature pyramid network for combining multiple scales features, a region proposal network… More >

    Dynamic Simulation of Cracked Buildings for Damage Detection

    Alan Alonso-Rivers1, Rolando Salgado-Estrada2,*

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.14, No.3, pp. 187-204, 2020, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2020.010743

    Abstract A dynamic simulation method for cracked structures is implemented to determine their dynamic response with the purpose of evaluating their structural behavior. The procedure makes possible the simulation of three-dimensional cracked structures. The excitation force is randomly generated to simulate wind gusts. It is assumed the structure remains in the elastic range, which allows for each mode that contributes to its dynamic response to be decoupled. The results indicate that the presence of damage causes changes in the modals parameters of the structure as accurate as other similar methods proposed for simpler structures. Therefore, it is concluded that the proposed… More >

    The Frequency Selection of SH0 Waves for Total Transmission and Its Application in the Damage Detection of Aircrafts

    Yanchao Yue1, *, Tangbing Chen1, Lingling Zhang1, Moustafa Abdelsalam1, Josephine Musanyufu1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.122, No.1, pp. 259-272, 2020, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2020.07218

    Abstract Based on wave interference, a methodology to realize the total transmission phenomenon of SH0 waves is proposed in this paper. After a systematical theoretical investigation, an exact frequency of a flat plate consisting of another medium with finite length, is obtained, which is furthermore exemplified by the finite element method. This frequency is the same as the classical Fabry-Perot condition and dependent on the thickness of the material. It has been revealed that an SH0 wave, with its wavelength equal to twice of the length of another medium, can totally transmit across the medium without reflection. Especially when the impedance… More >
