Abstract

This study presents the verification of damage evaluation method based on the measurement of Relative Story Displacements (RSDs). The damage evaluation method is formulated to detect the damaged locations of structural elements and evaluate their damage degree based on the displacement loading analysis by the time histories of measured RSDs. In the evaluation process, the analytical technique is introduced to compensate for the measurement errors associated with the sensor properties. The monitoring accuraciesare analyzed through the shaking table test of a full-scale 4-sotry steel building carried out at E-defense in Japan. The results indicate the effectiveness of the proposed damage evaluation method in its applications to the structural health monitoring system.
