Abstract

This paper presents the theory of generic elements along with the concept of subspace angles applied in damage location in joints. Structural joints are often considered to be failure-critical regions due to their relatively high uncertainty during mathematical model generation and subsequent simulations and design considerations. Two concepts investigated in this paper are the use of joint subspaces for unique damage location and the combined use of different modal type responses in the subspace angle approach. Both concepts are jointly presented in the concluding example.
