Abstract

This study explores the possibility of using frequency responses function curvature method and cubic spline interpolation to locate the storeys of a building that is damaged in an earthquake, and corresponding frequency responses function curvature of storey often change in the earthquake. The frequency responses function of a building in each floor is established from the full structural dynamic responses. Next, the frequency responses function of storeys that be obtained by cubic spline interpolation would be used to detect the damage location of a building. The effectiveness of the proposed procedure is verified using numerically simulated earthquake responses of the finite element model of an eight-storey frame.
