In this paper it is shown that natural frequency and antiresonant frequency shifts induced by a structural damage in an axially vibrating rod contain information on certain generalized Fourier coefficients of the stiffness variation caused by the degradation. This property is used to define a reconstruction procedure based on iterative updating of the undamaged configuration. The results of numerical simulations on rods with localized or diffuse damages are in good agreement with the theory, provided that average frequency and antiresonant frequency shifts due to degradation are bigger than the shifts due to modeling/measurement errors. Experimental results obtained on cracked steel rods showed that, in the inverse problem solution, noise and modeling errors on antiresonances are usually amplified strongly with respect to cases in which natural frequency data is used.

Abstract

In this paper it is shown that natural frequency and antiresonant frequency shifts induced by a structural damage in an axially vibrating rod contain information on certain generalized Fourier coefficients of the stiffness variation caused by the degradation. This property is used to define a reconstruction procedure based on iterative updating of the undamaged configuration. The results of numerical simulations on rods with localized or diffuse damages are in good agreement with the theory, provided that average frequency and antiresonant frequency shifts due to degradation are bigger than the shifts due to modeling/measurement errors. Experimental results obtained on cracked steel rods showed that, in the inverse problem solution, noise and modeling errors on antiresonances are usually amplified strongly with respect to cases in which natural frequency data is used.
