Abstract
The variation of modal properties caused by temperature effects is assessed to correct modal data used for damage detection in plate-girder bridges. First, experiments on model plate-girder bridges are described. Next, the relationship between temperature and natural frequencies is estimated and a set of empirical frequency-correction formula are analyzed for the test structure. Finally, a frequency-based method is used to locate and estimate severity of damage in the test structure using experimental modal data which are adjusted by the frequency-correction formula. Here, local damage in beam-type structures is detected by using measured frequencies and analytical mode shapes.
