Abstract

Over the years, the derivatives of modal displacement and rotation fields have been used to localize damage in beams. Usually, the derivatives are computed by applying finite differences. The finite differences propagate and amplify the errors that exist in real measurements, and thus, it is necessary to minimize this problem in order to get reliable damage localizations. A way to decrease the propagation and amplification of the errors is to select an optimal spatial sampling. This paper presents a technique where an optimal spatial sampling of modal rotation fields is computed and used to obtain the modal curvatures. Experimental measurements of modal rotation fields of a beam with single and multiple damages are obtained with shearography, which is an optical technique allowing the measurement of full-fields. These measurements are used to test the validity of the optimal sampling technique for the improvement of damage localization in real structures. An investigation on the ability of a model updating technique to quantify the damage is also reported. The model updating technique is defined by the variations of measured natural frequencies and measured modal rotations and aims at calibrating the values of the second moment of area in the damaged areas, which were previously localized.
