Abstract
Nondestructive damage detection is an important issue in aging civil engineering, aerospace structures, and several other areas. This study presents an attempt to use parameterized partial differential equations and Galerkin approximation techniques to detect and locate damage. Dynamical analysis is carried out using structure bonded piezoceramic patches as both sensors and actuators. Our presentation demonstrates the flexibility and accuracy of this approach. It is mode independent and can sense the presence of damage and locate certain damages to a satisfactory precision. As an example, a beam with a pair of piezoceramic patches bonded to it is used as the test structure; several computational examples with holes of different size, shape, and location in the beam are investigated.
