Abstract This paper presents an effective computational approach comprised of forward and inverse analyses for detection of multiple complex flaw clusters in elastic solids. A three-step detection strategy is introduced for inverse analysis, whereas extended finite element method (XFEM) is adopted for forward analysis. The use of XFEM is to avoid re-meshing during the change of flaw geometries. The three-step detection strategy involves: firstly, an optimization method that couples an improved discrete artificial bee colony algorithm and hierarchical clustering analysis (IDABC-HCA) is used to capture subdomains containing flaws with limited measure points in the global domain; secondly, additional measure points are introduced locally within each captured subdomain, where the number of flaws and the rough geometry of each flaw are quickly determined with the IDABC-HCA; finally, true geometries of flaws are obtained on the basis of the rough geometries by the Broyden-Fletcher-Goldfarb-Shanno (BFGS) method. To save computational time, “Queue and Kill” method is proposed to actively identify and eliminate the improper candidate flaws and/or flaw clusters. Three numerical examples of multiple flaw detection that include simple and complex flaw geometries are analyzed. The results demonstrate that the proposed approach can effectively detect multiple complex flaw clusters without prior information of the flaw number.

Abstract In the signal processing domain, there has been growing interest in using acoustic emission (AE) signals for the fault diagnosis and condition assessment instead of vibration signals, which has been advocated as an effective technique for identifying fracture, crack or damage. The AE signal has high frequencies up to several MHz which can avoid some signals interference, such as the parts of bearing (i.e. rolling elements, ring and so on) and other rotating parts of machine. However, ac...

Abstract Numerical estimation of stress intensity factors (SIFs), an important fracture mechanics parameter, for sharp V-notched structures is presented by using a new effective approach based on strain energy method associated with extended finite element method (XFEM). This approach takes advantages of both enrichments and the strain energy method. While enrichments allow the representation of notch-faces independent of the mesh, the strain energy approach is however used for the evaluation of...

Abstract The present work develops a weld deviation detection system based on infrared visual sensing for swing arc narrow gap weld tracking, proposes a local pattern recognition (LPR) algorithm to detect groove edge position, and experimentally investigates their adaptabilities. This approach captures welding image synchronously with the base current period of pulsed arc as the arc swings to stay at groove sidewall, and extracts weld deviation feature from the relative distances of electrode wi...

AbstractThe detection of tunnel lining cracks is a very key procedure in the inspection of tunnels. Traditional image-processing approaches are commonly based on the characteristic that the grayscale value of the crack is a local minimum. However, issues such as low contrast, uneven illumination, and severe noise pollution generally exist in a tunnel lining image. Hence, the traditional image-processing method cannot effectively detect cracks on the tunnel lining surface. This paper presents a t...

In X-ray holographic near-field imaging the resolution and image quality depend sensitively on the beam. Artifacts are often encountered due to the strong focusing required to reach high resolution. Here, two schemes for reconstructing the complex-valued and extended wavefront of X-ray nano-probes, primarily in the planes relevant for imaging (i.e. focus, sample and detection plane), are presented and compared. Firstly, near-field ptychography is used, based on scanning a test pattern laterally ...

A novel meshfree discretization technique in terms of the reproducing kernel particle method is presented for accurately evaluating mixed-mode intensity factors of cracked shear-deformable plates. Mindlin–Reissner plate theory is adopted to solve the cracked plates problem in the Galerkin formulation, considering transverse shear deformation. The diffraction method, visibility criterion and enriched basis are included in the generation of meshfree interpolants for the modeling of fracture. In th...

Abstract A novel local mesh refinement approach for fracture analysis of three-dimensional (3-D) linear elastic solids is developed, considering both 3-D straight and curved planar cracks. The present local mesh refinement formulation is a combination of the extended finite element method (XFEM), variable-node hexahedron elements, and a posteriori error indicator. Our 3-D formulation using hexahedron elements rigorously embraces a posteriori error estimation scheme, a structural coupling scale-m...

Nelder-Mead (NM) and Quasi-Newton (QN) optimization methods are used for the numerical solution of crack identification problems in elastody- namics. Fracture is modeled by the eXtended Finite Element Method. The Newmark-b method with Rayleigh damping is employed for the time integra- tion. The effects of various dynamical test loads on the crack identification are investigated. For a time- harmonic excitation with a single frequency and a short-duration signal measured along part of the externa...

Abstract During steel strip production, mechanical forces and environmental factors cause surface defects of the steel strip. Therefore, detection of such defects is key to the production of high quality products. Moreover, surface defects of the steel strip cause great economic losses to the high-tech industry. So far, few studies have explored methods of identifying the defects, and most of the currently available algorithms are not sufficiently effective. Therefore, we developed an end-to-end...

Abstract In this paper, system identification is coupled with optimization-based damage detection to provide accurate localization of cracks in thin plates, under dynamic loading. Detection relies on exploitation of strain measurements from a network of sensors deployed onto the plate structure. The data-driven approach is based on the detection of discrepancies between healthy and damaged modal strain curvatures, while the model-based method exploits an enriched finite element method coupled to...

Abstract The inverse finite element method (iFEM) is advisable as accurate and efficient method for structure health monitoring (SHM). The previous standard iFEM uses 0th-order and 1st-order shape functions to reconstruct displacement fields under concentrated load and distributed load, respectively. However, in engineering environmental loads, it is difficult to determine which external load is mentioned above. To solve this problem, this paper proposes an improved iFEM based on isogeometric an...

Abstract This paper proposes a novel strategy for detecting multiple flaws based on the dynamic extended finite element method (XFEM) and an improved artificial bee colony (IABC) algorithm. To improve the qualities of the initial iterative candidates, a chaotic sequence is adopted to replace the random sequence in the conventional artificial colony algorithm. Meanwhile, an adaptive parameter dimension search is proposed to prevent the iterative solution from falling into a local optimum trap, an...

The objective of this paper was to predict the fatigue life, surface crack and initial flaw size distribution of fatigue surface crack growth. A statistical analysis is carried out to evaluate the distributions of initial flaw size as an input uncertain parameter. The prediction of remaining life to schedule the maintenance is important to prevent serious accidents from occurring. The three-point and four-point bendings are analysed using the Bootstrap S-version finite element model (BootstrapS-...
