Abstract/Summary Detecting localised damage, such as small cracks in many structural components, is still a difficult problem in the field of structural health monitoring (SHM). A number of techniques have been developed in the past two decades for on-line detection and assessment of damage in various structures. The greatest challenge of the on-line SHM techniques is the correct interpretation of the collected data. For example, in passive SHM techniques it is very difficult to distinguish between the damage development and the change in loading and environmental conditions. This paper discusses the development of a new passive method of damage detection based on the most fundamental concept in Continuum Mechanics: the concept of compatibility of strain field, which was undeservedly overlooked in SHM techniques. The main feature of this method is its invariance to changing loading conditions. The examples considered in this paper demonstrate a good potential of this method for many practical applications.
