Damage detection in suspension bridges using vibration characteristics
Wickramasinghe, Wasanthi Ramyalatha (2015) Damage detection in suspension bridges using vibration characteristics. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.
This research developed a method to detect damage in suspension bridges using vibration characteristics. These bridges exhibit complex vibration and hence it is difficult to use traditional vibration based methods to detect damage in them. This research therefore proposed component specific damage indices and verified their capability to detect and locate damage in the main cables and hangers of suspension bridges.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
