Aging and deterioration of existing structures and the need for rapid assessment and evaluation of these structures for hazard mitigation has significantly expanded the research efforts in the field of structural health monitoring (SHM). SHM involves monitoring of a structure using periodically sampled measurements, extraction of damage sensitive features from these measurements, and assessment of the current health state/integrity of the system. The approach known as the Damage Locating Vector (DLV) technique is an SHM tool that interrogates changes in the flexibilities synthesized at sensor locations using the vibration data with respect to the location of damage. This paper presents the damage identification results of the Phase II Experimental Benchmark Structure of the IASC-ASCE Task Group on Structural Health Monitoring. © RILEM 2013.
