Structural damage assessment using linear approximation with maximum entropy and transmissibility data

Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing Volume 54-55, March 2015, Pages 210 – 223 V. Meruane, A. Ortiz-Bernardin Abstract Supervised learning algorithms have been proposed as a suitable alternative to model updating methods in structural damage assessment, being Artificial Neural Networks the most frequently used. Notwithstanding, the slow learning speed and the large number of parameters that need…

A maximum entropy approach to assess debonding in honeycomb aluminum plates

Entropy Volume 16, Issue 5, May 2014, Pages 2869-2889 V. Meruane, V. del Fierro, A. Ortiz-Bernardin Abstract Honeycomb sandwich structures are used in a wide variety of applications. Nevertheless, due to manufacturing defects or impact loads, these structures can be subject to imperfect bonding or debonding between the skin and the honeycomb core. The presence of…
