    Anwer H. Hussein*, Hussam K. Risan

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.16, No.3, pp. 213-233, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.018293

    Abstract Silos are strategical structures used to stockpile various types of granular materials. They are highly vulnerable to earthquake excitation and have been frequently reported to fail at a higher rate than any other industrial structure. The seismic response of silos within the near-fault region will suffer a complex combination of loadings due to the unique characteristics of the near-fault ground motions; which are usually associated with a large amplitude pulse at the beginning of either the velocity or the displacement time histories. This study aims to numerically evaluate the seismic response of reinforced concrete cylindrical silos under near-fault ground motions… More >

    Tyre Pressure Supervision of Two Wheeler Using Machine Learning

    Sujit S. Pardeshi1, Abhishek D. Patange1, R. Jegadeeshwaran2,*, Mayur R. Bhosale3

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.16, No.3, pp. 271-290, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.010622

    Abstract The regulation of tyre pressure is treated as a significant aspect of ‘tyre maintenance’ in the domain of autotronics. The manual supervision of a tyre pressure is typically an ignored task by most of the users. The existing instrumental scheme incorporates stand-alone monitoring with pressure and/or temperature sensors and requires regular manual conduct. Hence these schemes turn to be incompatible for on-board supervision and automated prediction of tyre condition. In this perspective, the Machine Learning (ML) approach acts appropriate as it exhibits comparison of specific performance in the past with present, intended for predicting the same in near future.

    Abstract With the construction of automated docks, health monitoring technology as a parallel safety assurance technology for unmanned hoisting machinery has become a hot spot in the development of the industry. Hoisting machinery has a huge structure and numerous welded joints. The complexity and nonlinearity of the welded structure itself makes the structural failure parts random and difficult to arrange for monitoring sensors. In order to solve the problem of effectiveness and stability of the sensor arrangement method for monitoring the structure of hoisting machinery. Using the global and local search capabilities enhanced by the complementary search mechanism, a structural vibration… More >

    Identification of Internal Damage in Circular Cylinders through Laser Scanning of Vibrating Surfaces

    Yisu Xi1, Binkai Shi2, Wei Xu1,3,*, Jing Ge4, Huaxin Zhu5, Dragoslav Sumarac6,7

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.16, No.2, pp. 163-177, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.022082

    Abstract With the aid of non-contact measurements of vibrating surfaces through laser scanning, operating deflection shapes (ODSs) with high spatial resolutions can be used to graphically characterize damage in plane structures. Although numerous damage identification approaches relying on laser-measured ODSs have been developed for plate-type structures, they cannot be directly applied to circular cylinders due to the gap between equations of motions of plates and circular cylinders. To fill this gap, a novel approach is proposed in this study for damage identification of circular cylinders. Damage-induced discontinuities of the derivatives of ODSs can be used to graphically manifest the occurrence of… More >

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.16, No.2, pp. 97-128, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.015732

    Abstract Structural health monitoring (SHM) is a process for determination of presence, location, severity of damages and remaining life of the infrastructures. SHM is widely applied in aerospace, mechanical and civil engineering systems to assess the conditions of structures to improve the operation, safety, serviceability and reliability, respectively. There are various SHM techniques for monitoring the health of structures such as global response based and local techniques. Damages occur in the structures due to its inability to withstand intended design loadings, physical environment and chemical environment. Therefore, damage identification is necessary to improve the durability of the structures for protection against… More >

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.16, No.1, pp. 15-35, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.020418

    Abstract A significant amount of research is concerned with dynamic modal parameters for damage detection of structural conditions due to their simplicity in use and feasibility. However, their use for damage detection should be performed with special attention, particularly in operational and environmental conditions subjected to temperature changes. Beams in construction industries experience different loading types, such as temperature changes leading to crack initiation and propagation. Changed physical and dynamic properties such as natural frequencies and mode shapes indicate that damage has occurred within the structures. In this study, vibration analysis of cantilever and cantilever simply supported beams has been carried… More >

    Zhanjun Wu1, Tengteng Li1, Jiachen Zhang2, Yifan Wu3, Jianle Li1, Lei Yang1, Hao Xu1,*

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.16, No.1, pp. 1-14, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.019554

    Abstract Shape sensing as a crucial component of structural health monitoring plays a vital role in real-time actuation and control of smart structures, and monitoring of structural integrity. As a model-based method, the inverse finite element method (iFEM) has been proved to be a valuable shape sensing tool that is suitable for complex structures. In this paper, we propose a novel approach for the shape sensing of thin shell structures with iFEM. Considering the structural form and stress characteristics of thin-walled structure, the error function consists of membrane and bending section strains only which is consistent with the Kirchhoff–Love shell theory.… More >

    Qiang Zhang1, Xianguang Zha1, Jun Wu1, Liang Zhang1, Wei Dai2, Gang Ren3, Shiqian Li3, Ning Ji3,*, Xiangjun Zhu3, Fengwei Tian3

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.16, No.1, pp. 37-51, 2022, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2022.018422

    Abstract As the emergency power supply for a simulation substation, lead-acid batteries have a work pattern featuring non-continuous operation, which leads to capacity regeneration. However, the accurate estimation of battery state of charge (SOC), a measurement of the amount of energy available in a battery, remains a hard nut to crack because of the non-stationarity and randomness of battery capacity change. This paper has proposed a comprehensive method for lead-acid battery SOC estimation, which may aid in maintaining a reasonable charging schedule in a simulation substation and improving battery’s durability. Based on the battery work pattern, an improved Ampere-hour method is… More >
