Abstract

This MQP presents an application of structural health monitoring (SHM) schemes to the large-scale civil engineering structures. The SHM methodology is an integrated model of a nonlinear autoregressive moving average (ARMA) and an eigenvalue analysis framework. To demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach, 76-story high-rise buildings equipped with a passive tuned mass damper (PTMD) and an active tuned mass damper (ATMD) system under wind loads are investigated. It is shown from the simulation results that the proposed ARMA-eigenvalue analysis framework is effective in detecting damages from the high-rise building structure under wind loads.
