This study proposes the application of a novel hybrid neuro-particle swarm optimization technique in damage assessment problems. Here, PSO is used to optimally fix various elements of ANN architecture like number of neurons, hidden layer, learning coefficients and momentum coefficient, which by large are decided by trial and error. The pertinency of this method is demonstrated by solving few single and multiple element damage identification cases in a steel bridge truss structure wherein the results are found to be encouraging.
