A Damage Localization Approach for Rahmen Bridge Based on Convolutional Neural Network

Damage localization is the process of detecting the location of damage using a structural health monitoring system. However, existing damage localization methods cannot be used for localizing the damage of bridges in real time because of their slow testing speed. Thus, in this study a damage localization approach was developed using a convolutional neural network (CNN). To develop the CNN model for damage localization, simulation data was generated through a numerical model of a reinforced concrete Rahmen bridge with static loading conditions. The proposed CNN-based approach aims to identify 12 single damage locations or no damage. The approach was trained and tested with three different data set generated with three damage severities, and it was possible to estimate the damage location with an accuracy of 87.3% when the damage severity in the bridge is serious. The results showed that the deep learning has the potential to overcome the limitations of existing damage localization techniques.
