About the Journal

In order to maintain a reasonable cost for large scale structures such as airframes, offshore structures, nuclear plants etc., it is generally accepted that improved methods for structural integrity and durability assessment are required. Structural Health Monitoring (SDHM) had emerged as an active area of research for fatigue life and damage accumulation prognostics.

    Experimental Investigation on Fracture Performance of Short Basalt Fiber Bundle Reinforced Concrete

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.16, No.4, pp. 291-305, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.015097
    Abstract In this paper, a notched three-point bending test is used to study the fracture performance of the short basalt fiber bundle reinforced concrete (SBFBRC). To compare and analyze the enhancement effect of different diameters and different content of basalt fiber bundles on the fracture performance of concrete, some groups are set up, and the P-CMOD curves of each group of specimens are measured, and the fracture toughness and fracture energy of each control group are calculated. The fracture toughness and fracture energy are two important fracture performance parameters to study the effect and law of the new basalt fiber bundles… More >

    Experimental Investigation of Performance Characteristics of PZT-5A with Application to Fault Diagnosis

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.16, No.4, pp. 307-321, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.015266
    Abstract In the previous couple of decades, techniques to reap energy and empower low voltage electronic devices have received outstanding attention. Most of the methods based on the piezoelectric effect to harvest the energy from ambient vibrations have been revolutionized. There’s an absence of experiment-based investigation which incorporates the microstructure analysis and crystal morphology of those energy harvest home materials. Moreover, the impact of variable mechanical and thermal load conditions has seldom been studied within the previous literature to utilize the effectiveness of those materials in several practical applications like structural health monitoring (SHM), etc. In the proposed research work, scanning… More >

    Outlier Detection and Forecasting for Bridge Health Monitoring Based on Time Series Intervention Analysis

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.16, No.4, pp. 323-341, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.021446
    Abstract The method of time series analysis, applied by establishing appropriate mathematical models for bridge health monitoring data and making forecasts of structural future behavior, stands out as a novel and viable research direction for bridge state assessment. However, outliers inevitably exist in the monitoring data due to various interventions, which reduce the precision of model fitting and affect the forecasting results. Therefore, the identification of outliers is crucial for the accurate interpretation of the monitoring data. In this study, a time series model combined with outlier information for bridge health monitoring is established using intervention analysis theory, and the forecasting… More >

    Investigating the Retrofit of RC Frames Using TADAS Yielding Dampers

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.16, No.4, pp. 343-359, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.07927
    Abstract TADAS dampers are a type of passive structural control system used in the seismic design or retrofitting of structures. These types of dampers are designed so that they would yield before the main components of the structure during earthquake. This dissipates a large portion of the earthquake’s energy and reduces the energy dissipation demand in the main components of the structure. Considering its suitable performance, this damper has been the subject of numerous studies. However, there are still ambiguities regarding the effect of the number of these dampers on the retrofitting of reinforced concrete (RC) frames and their design procedure.… More >

    Vibration Characteristics Analysis and Structure Optimization of Catenary Portal Structure on Four-Wire Bridge

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.16, No.4, pp. 361-382, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.023851
    Abstract The portal structure is the support equipment in the catenary, which bears the load of contact suspension and support equipment. In practical work, with the change of external forces, the support equipment bears complex and changeable loads, so it has higher requirements for its reliability and safety. In order to study the dynamic characteristics of catenary portal structure on continuous beam of four-way bridge, taking the catenary portal structure on Dshaping four-way bridge as the research object, the portal structure simulation model of bridge-network integration was established in Midas Civil. The maximum point of deformation and stress was determined by… More >

    Vibration-Based Fault Diagnosis Study on a Hydraulic Brake System Using Fuzzy Logic with Histogram Features

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.16, No.4, pp. 383-396, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.011396
    Abstract The requirement of fault diagnosis in the field of automobiles is growing higher day by day. The reliability of human resources for the fault diagnosis is uncertain. Brakes are one of the major critical components in automobiles that require closer and active observation. This research work demonstrates a fault diagnosis technique for monitoring the hydraulic brake system using vibration analysis. Vibration signals of a rotating element contain dynamic information about its health condition. Hence, the vibration signals were used for the brake fault diagnosis study. The study was carried out on a brake fault diagnosis experimental setup. The vibration signals… More >

    Numerical Simulation and Field Monitoring Analysis for Deep Foundation Pit Construction of Subway Station

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.16, No.4, pp. 397-416, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.010397
    Abstract To investigate the effect of deep foundation pit excavation on the stability of retaining structure, a subway station in the city of Jinan was selected as a project, and a FLAC3D-based three dimensional model was developed for numerical simulation. The horizontal displacement of the retaining structure, the axial force of the support, and the vertical displacement of the column were studied and compared to the collected data from the field. The findings indicate that when the foundation pit is excavated, the maximum deformation of the retaining structure progressively decreases from the top, the distortion of the retaining structure gradually rises,… More >
