Slab damage detection by comparing curvature of relevant deflection areas

Ivana Štimac, Ante Mihanović, Ivica Kožar

Abstract

The method of slab damage detection by comparing curvature of deflection-related areas of influence, for damaged and undamaged states of structure, is presented in the paper. The applicability of the procedure is analyzed through numerical simulations. The results have shown that the method does not call for a considerable number of measurement points. Two measurement points within a field should be planned for structures with more than one field, while one measurement point per field is considered sufficient for structures spreading over two or more fields.
