Detection of structural damage using the exponential sine sweep method
REBILLAT, Marc; HAJRYA, Rafik; MECHBAL, Nazih
Structural damages can result in nonlinear dynamical responses. Thus, estimating the nonlinearities generated by damages potentially allows detecting them. In this paper, an original approach called the ES2D (Exponential Sine Sweep Damage Detection) is proposed for nonlinear damage detection. This approach is based on a damage index that reflects the ratio of the energy contained in the nonlinear part of the output versus the energy contained in its linear part. For this, we suppose that the system under study can be modeled as a cascade of Hammerstein models, made of N branches in parallel composed of an elevation to the nth power followed by a linear filter called the nth order kernel. The Exponential Sine Sweep Method (ESSM) is then used to identify the linear and nonlinear parts of the model. Exponential sine sweeps are a class of sine sweeps that allow estimating a system’s first kernels in a wide frequency band from only one measurement. The ES2D method is illustrated experimentally on two actual composite plates with surface-mounted PZT-elements: one healthy and one damaged (impact). A given propagation path between a sensor and an actuator in the system is here under investigation. Using the ESSM, the first kernels modeling this propagation path are estimated for both the damaged and undamaged states. On the basis of these estimated first Kernels, the damage index is built. Its detecting efficiency and its insensitivity to environmental noise are then assessed.

Principal component analysis and perturbation theory–based robust damage detection of multifunctional aircraft structure

A fundamental problem in structural damage detection is to define an efficient feature to calculate a damage index. Furthermore, due to perturbations from various sources, we also need to define a rigorous threshold whose overtaking indicates the presence of damages. In this article, we develop a robust damage detection methodology based on principal component analysis. We first present an original damage index based on projection of the separation matrix, and then, we drive a novel adaptive threshold that does not rely on statistical assumptions. This threshold is analytic, and it is based on matrix perturbation theory. The efficiency of the method is illustrated using simulations of a composite smart structure and experimental results performed on a conformal load-bearing antenna structure laboratory test.

The most widely known form of multifunctional aircraft structure is smart structures for structural health monitoring (SHM). The aim is to provide automated systems whose purposes are to identify and to characterize possible damage within structures by using a network of actuators and sensors. Unfortunately, environmental and operational variability render many of the proposed damage detection methods difficult to successfully be applied. In this paper, an original robust damage detection approach using output-only vibration data is proposed. It is based on independent component analysis and matrix perturbation analysis, where an analytical threshold is proposed to get rid of statistical assumptions usually performed in damage detection approach. The effectiveness of the proposed SHM method is demonstrated numerically using finite element simulations and experimentally through a conformal load-bearing antenna structure and composite plates instrumented with piezoelectric ceramic materials.

Nonlinear structural damage detection based on cascade of Hammerstein models

Structural damages can result in nonlinear dynamical signatures that can significantly enhance their detection. An original nonlinear damage detection approach is proposed that is based on a cascade of Hammerstein models representation of the structure. This model is estimated by means of the Exponential Sine Sweep Method from only one measurement. On the basis of this estimated model, the linear and nonlinear parts of the output are estimated, and two damage indexes (DIs) are proposed. The first DI is built as the ratio of the energy contained in the nonlinear part of an output versus the energy contained in its linear part. The second DI is the angle between the subspaces obtained from the nonlinear parts of two set of outputs after a principal component analysis. The sensitivity of the proposed DIs to the presence of damages as well as their robustness to noise are assessed numerically on spring-mass-damper structures and experimentally on actual composite plates with surface-mounted PZT-elements. Results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method to detect a damage in nonlinear structures and in the presence of noise.
