    Crack Segmentation Based on Fusing Multi-Scale Wavelet and Spatial-Channel Attention

    Peng Geng*, Ji Lu, Hongtao Ma, Guiyi Yang

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.17, No.1, pp. 1-22, 2023, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2023.018632

    Abstract Accurate and reliable crack segmentation is a challenge and meaningful task. In this article, aiming at the characteristics of cracks on the concrete images, the intensity frequency information of source images which is obtained by Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) is fed into deep learning-based networks to enhance the ability of network on crack segmentation. To well integrate frequency information into network an effective and novel DWTA module based on the DWT and scSE attention mechanism is proposed. The semantic information of cracks is enhanced and the irrelevant information is suppressed by DWTA module. And the gap between frequency information and… More >

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.17, No.1, pp. 55-70, 2023, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.017458

    Abstract Liquid storage, particularly oil and petrochemical products which are considered hazardous liquid, are an important part of the oil industry. Thin-walled vertical cylindrical steel storage tanks are widely used in recent years. Due to high sensitivity of these structures in an earthquake and other external excitations may lead to catastrophic consequences. For instance, huge economic losses, environmental damages, and casualities, many studies have been done about these structures. past studies showed that liquid storage tanks, equipped with a floating roof, are potentially vulnerable while subjected to seismic loads and earthquake has been considered as one of the most destructive natural… More >

    Regional Finite-Fault Source Model for Development of Ground Motion Attenuation Relationship in Sichuan, China

    Wei Jiang1,2,*, Zelin Cao3,4

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.17, No.1, pp. 37-54, 2023, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.013444

    Abstract The attenuation relationship of ground motion based on seismology has always been a front subject of engineering earthquake. Among them, the regional finite-fault source model is very important. In view of this point, the general characteristics of regional seism-tectonics, including the dip and depth of the fault plane, are emphasized. According to the statistics of regional seism-tectonics and focal mechanisms in Sichuan, China, and the sensitivity of estimated peak ground acceleration (PGA) attenuation is analyzed, and the dip angle is taken as an average of 70°. Based the statistics of the upper crustal structure and the focal depth of regional… More >

    Pinwu Guan1, Zheng Ma1, Pu Zhang1, Shizhan Xu1,*, Wei Liu2, Yanwei Guo2, Xin Yang2, Zhen Wang2, Haibo Wang2, Chao Yuan2, Jie Wang2

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.17, No.1, pp. 23-36, 2023, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2023.011383

    Abstract An isolation trench is a simple and effective method to isolate structural vibrations originating from sources of vibration other than earthquakes (machines, traffic, explosions, etc.); however, there is still not a conclusive depth of the isolation trench for frame structures. To investigate the isolation effect of a trench in the frame structure designed for ground vibration, both a field test and finite element analysis were conducted to analyze the reduced effect of the vibration. The vibration reduction analysis was based on the dynamic equation and wave theory. Considering the vibration control of an industrial plant frame, a soil-trench-building finite element… More >

    Investigating the Retrofit of RC Frames Using TADAS Yielding Dampers

    Mehrzad TahamouliRoudsari1,*, K. Cheraghi2, R. Aghayari2

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.16, No.4, pp. 343-359, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.07927

    Abstract TADAS dampers are a type of passive structural control system used in the seismic design or retrofitting of structures. These types of dampers are designed so that they would yield before the main components of the structure during earthquake. This dissipates a large portion of the earthquake’s energy and reduces the energy dissipation demand in the main components of the structure. Considering its suitable performance, this damper has been the subject of numerous studies. However, there are still ambiguities regarding the effect of the number of these dampers on the retrofitting of reinforced concrete (RC) frames and their design procedure.… More >

    Vibration Characteristics Analysis and Structure Optimization of Catenary Portal Structure on Four-Wire Bridge

    Sihua Wang1,2, Xujie Li1,2,*

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.16, No.4, pp. 361-382, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.023851

    Abstract The portal structure is the support equipment in the catenary, which bears the load of contact suspension and support equipment. In practical work, with the change of external forces, the support equipment bears complex and changeable loads, so it has higher requirements for its reliability and safety. In order to study the dynamic characteristics of catenary portal structure on continuous beam of four-way bridge, taking the catenary portal structure on Dshaping four-way bridge as the research object, the portal structure simulation model of bridge-network integration was established in Midas Civil. The maximum point of deformation and stress was determined by… More >

    Outlier Detection and Forecasting for Bridge Health Monitoring Based on Time Series Intervention Analysis

    Bing Qu*, Ping Liao, Yaolong Huang

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.16, No.4, pp. 323-341, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.021446

    Abstract The method of time series analysis, applied by establishing appropriate mathematical models for bridge health monitoring data and making forecasts of structural future behavior, stands out as a novel and viable research direction for bridge state assessment. However, outliers inevitably exist in the monitoring data due to various interventions, which reduce the precision of model fitting and affect the forecasting results. Therefore, the identification of outliers is crucial for the accurate interpretation of the monitoring data. In this study, a time series model combined with outlier information for bridge health monitoring is established using intervention analysis theory, and the forecasting… More >

    Abstract In this paper, a notched three-point bending test is used to study the fracture performance of the short basalt fiber bundle reinforced concrete (SBFBRC). To compare and analyze the enhancement effect of different diameters and different content of basalt fiber bundles on the fracture performance of concrete, some groups are set up, and the P-CMOD curves of each group of specimens are measured, and the fracture toughness and fracture energy of each control group are calculated. The fracture toughness and fracture energy are two important fracture performance parameters to study the effect and law of the new basalt fiber bundles… More >
