STRUCTURAL DAMAGE DETECTION BY MEASUREMENT OF DYNAMIC RESPONSE

Damage to an offshore structure below the waterline is difficult to determine by inspection. Recently, dynamic techniques have evolved to sense the presence of major structural damage in below-waterline structural elements. This paper describes experiments toward the evaluation of detecting structural damage by these techniques.
