About the Journal

In order to maintain a reasonable cost for large scale structures such as airframes, offshore structures, nuclear plants etc., it is generally accepted that improved methods for structural integrity and durability assessment are required. Structural Health Monitoring (SDHM) had emerged as an active area of research for fatigue life and damage accumulation prognostics.

This journal is a member of the Committee on PublicationEthics (COPE).

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

    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 >

    Study on the Application of Vibration Isolation by Using a Trench in Frame Structures

    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 >

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

    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 >

    Experimental Investigation on the Effect of Seal Presence on the Behavior of Double-Deck Floating Roofs in Cylindrical Steel Storage Tanks

    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 >

    Detection of Frost-Resistance Property of Large-Size Concrete Based on Impact-Echo Method

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.17, No.1, pp. 71-88, 2023, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2023.024912
    Abstract The dynamic elasticity modulus (Ed) is the most commonly used indexes for nondestructive testing to represent the internal damage of hydraulic concrete. Samples with a specific size is required when the transverse resonance method was used to detect the Ed, resulting in a limitation for field tests. The impact-echo method can make up defects of traditional detection methods for frost-resistance testing, such as the evaluation via the loss of mass or strength. The feasibility of the impact-echo method to obtain the relative Ed is explored to detect the frost-resistance property of large-volume hydraulic concretes on site. Results show that the… More >
