Nondestructive Damage Detection Based on Modal Analysis

T. Plachý, M. Polák


Three studies of damage identification and localization based on methods using experimentally estimated modal characteristics are presented. The results of an experimental investigation of simple structural elements (three RC-beams and three RC-slabs) obtained in the laboratory are compared with the results obtained on a real structure (a composite bridge – a concrete deck supported by steel girders) in situ.
