Studies from Ibaraki University add new findings in the area of computer-aided design
June 9th, 2008
"A damage locating algorithm with no requirement for a detailed structural analytical model has been proposed in our previous research, named a modal macro-strain vector (MMSV) method by directly using the modal parameters extracted from dynamic macro-strain data recorded by a long-gage fiber optic sensors array distributed throughout the full or some partial areas of beam-like structures. This article is devoted to generalizing the originally proposed algorithm based on the correlation of modal parameters among the distributed fiber optic sensors to develop a method for both damage locating and quantifying," researchers in Ibaraki, Japan report.
"After a brief review of...
