Crack in a structural member alters local stiffness that affects the dynamic response, such as natural frequency and mode shapes. The purpose of structural health monitoring is to diagnose and predict structural health. In this paper, a correlation model is developed to detect crack parameters, i.e., crack location and crack depth, in the beam. To evaluate the authenticity of the developed correlation model, the Artificial Intelligence-based approach is used to predict the crack parameters. Twenty-three Artificial Intelligence algorithms were used to predict the locations and depths of the crack in a cantilever beam. The developed correlation model used the first two normalized natural frequencies to predict the crack parameters. On the other hand, the first three normalized natural frequencies were used to input the machine learning models to predict the crack parameters. In this research study, V-shaped and U-shaped open edges cracks were considered on the cantilever beam. FEA software, ANSYS, is used to do the modal vibration analysis of various cracked cases of beams. The data set of V-shaped and a U-shaped cracked case obtained from finite element analysis (FEA) were used to develop the correlation model and machine learning models. The results for crack locations and crack depth obtained from the correlation model and machine learning models agree with the actual results. In the future, the proposed correlation model of crack detection can be used to detect cracks in more complicated structures.
Journal author rights
In order for Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration to publish and disseminate research articles, we need publishing rights. This is determined by a publishing agreement between the author and Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration. This agreement deals with the transfer or license of the copyright to Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration and authors retain significant rights to use and share their own published articles. Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration supports the need for authors to share, disseminate and maximize the impact of their research and these rights, in Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration proprietary are defined below:
For subscription articles:
Authors transfer copyright to the publisher as part of a journal publishing agreement, but have the right to: Share their article for personal use (manuscript version); retain patent, trademark and other intellectual property rights (including research data); proper attribution and credit for the published work.
For open access articles:
Authors sign an exclusive license agreement, where authors have copyright but license exclusive rights in their article to the publisher. In this case authors have the right to: share their article in the same ways permitted to third parties under the relevant user license; retain patent, trademark and other intellectual property rights (including research data); proper attribution and credit for the published work.
