STRUCTURAL DAMAGE DETECTION BY DISTRIBUTED PIEZOELECTRIC TRANSDUCERS AND TUNED ELECTRIC CIRCUITS

Abstract : A novel technique for damage detection of structures is introduced and discussed. It is based on purely electric measurements of the state variables of an electric network coupled to the main structure through a distributed set of piezoelectric patches. The constitutive parameters of this auxiliary network are optimized to increase the sensitivity of global measurements—as the frequency, response functions relative to selected electric degrees of freedom—with respect to a given class of variations in the structural–mechanical properties. Because the proposed method is based on purely electric input and output measurements, it allows for accurate results in the identification and localization of damages. Use of the electric frequency-response function to identify the mechanical damage leads to nonconvex optimization problems; therefore the proposed sensitivity-enhanced identification procedure becomes computationally efficient if an a priori knowledge about the damage is available
