    Mohammad Akhtar1, Abdulsamee Halahla2, Amin Almasri3,*

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.15, No.4, pp. 335-348, 2021, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2021.015988

    Abstract This research aims to study the effect of elevated temperature on the compressive strength evolution of concrete made with recycled aggregate. Demolished building concrete samples were collected from four different sites in Saudi Arabia, namely from Tabuk, Madina, Yanbu, and Riyadh. These concretes were crushed and recycled into aggregates to be used to make new concrete samples. These samples were tested for axial compressive strength at ages 3, 7, 14, and 28 days at ambient temperature. Samples of the same concrete mixes were subjected to the elevated temperature of 300°C and tested for compressive strength again. The experimental result reveals… More >

    P. S. Anoop1, Pranav Nair2, V. Sugumaran1,*

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.15, No.3, pp. 261-279, 2021, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2021.06656

    Abstract Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) are installed in automobiles to monitor the pressure of the tyres. Tyre pressure is an important parameter for the comfort of the travelers and the safety of the passengers. Many methods have been researched and reported for TPMS. Amongst them, vibration-based indirect TPMS using machine learning techniques are the recent ones. The literature reported the results for a perfectly balanced wheel. However, if there is a small unbalance, which is very common in automobile wheels, ‘What will be the effect on the classification accuracy?’ is the question on hand. This paper attempts to study the… More >

    Fatigue Crack Detection in Steel Plates Using Guided Waves and an Energy-Based Imaging Approach

    Mingyu Lu1,*, Kaige Zhu1, Qiang Wang2

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.15, No.3, pp. 207-225, 2021, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2021.017720

    Abstract The increasing use of ultrasonic guided waves (GWs) has been shown to have great potential for the detection of fatigue cracks and non-fatigue type damages in metallic structures. This paper reports on a study demonstrating an energy-based damage imaging approach in which signal characteristics identified through relative time differences by fatigue crack (RTD/f) through different sensor paths are used to estimate the location of fatigue crack in steel plates based on GWs generated by an active piezoceramic transducer (PZT) network. The propagation of GWs in the original 10 mm-thick plate was complicated due to its thick geometry, wave dispersion, boundary… More >

    Mahmoud Fakih1,*, Jaafar Hallal1, Hassan Darwich2, Hala Damerji3

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.15, No.3, pp. 247-260, 2021, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2021.015174

    Abstract Seismic earthquakes are a real danger for the construction evolution of high rise buildings. The rate of earthquakes around the world is noteworthy in a wide range of construction areas. In this study, we present the dynamic behavior of a high-rise RC building with dynamic isolators (lead-rubber-bearing), in comparison with a traditional shear wall system of the same building. Seismic isolation has been introduced in building construction to increase the structural stability and to protect the non-structural components against the damaging effects of an earthquake. In order to clarify the influence of incorporating lead rubber bearing isolators in the seismic… More >

    Nadom K. Mutlib1,*, Muna N. Ismael1, Shahrizan Baharom2

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.15, No.3, pp. 227-246, 2021, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2021.010725

    Abstract Structural health monitoring employs different tools and techniques to provide a prediction for damages that occur in various structures. Damages such as debond and cracks in concrete-filled steel tube column (CFST) are serious defects that threaten the integrity of the structural members. Ultrasonic waves monitoring applied to the CFST column is necessary to detect damages and quantify their size. However, without appropriate signal processing tools, the results of the monitoring process could not be crucial. In this research, a monitoring process based on a Multiphysics numerical simulation study was carried out. Two signal processing tools: short time Fourier transform (STFT)… More >

    Artificial Neural Network (ANN) Approach for Predicting Concrete Compressive Strength by SonReb

    Mario Bonagura, Lucio Nobile*

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.15, No.2, pp. 125-137, 2021, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2021.015644

    Abstract The compressive strength of concrete is one of most important mechanical parameters in the performance assessment of existing reinforced concrete structures. According to various international codes, core samples are drilled and tested to obtain the concrete compressive strengths. Non-destructive testing is an important alternative when destructive testing is not feasible without damaging the structure. The commonly used non-destructive testing (NDT) methods to estimate the in-situ values include the Rebound hammer test and the Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity test. The poor reliability of these tests due to different aspects could be partially contrasted by using both methods together, as proposed.in the SonReb… More >

    Yihua Wang1, Zhenhuan Zhou1, Hao Xu1,*, Shuai Li2, Zhanjun Wu1

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.15, No.2, pp. 85-101, 2021, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2021.014256

    Abstract For practical engineering structures, it is usually difficult to measure external load distribution in a direct manner, which makes inverse load identification important. Specifically, load identification is a typical inverse problem, for which the models (e.g., response matrix) are often ill-posed, resulting in degraded accuracy and impaired noise immunity of load identification. This study aims at identifying external loads in a stiffened plate structure, through comparing the effectiveness of different methods for parameter selection in regulation problems, including the Generalized Cross Validation (GCV) method, the Ordinary Cross Validation method and the truncated singular value decomposition method. With demonstrated high accuracy,… More >

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.15, No.2, pp. 139-165, 2021, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2021.012316

    Abstract This study is concerned with the diagnosis of discrepancies in a steel truss bridge by identifying dynamic properties from the vibration response signals of the bridges. The vibration response signals collected at bridges under three different vehicular speeds of 10 km/hr, 20 km/hr, and 30 km/hr are analyzed using statistical features such as kurtosis, magnitude of peak-to-peak, root mean square, crest factor as well as impulse factor in time domain, and Stockwell transform in the time-frequency domain. The considered statistical features except for kurtosis show uncertain behavior. The Stockwell transform showed low-resolution outcomes when the presence of noise in the… More >
