Structural damage occurs in any system, mechanical or not, even in living things. Mechanical damage means the appearance of irreversible changes in structural characteristics. Methods for structural monitoring are ways to estimate any changes in structural strength. Damage detection techniques give warnings at the right moment on duty before failure of the structure create more damages. After years of research damage detection techniques evolve to a higher level for localization of damage in complex assemblies. Finding the precise location of the damaged area helps in taking the first action to avoid catastrophic failure to the structure. This study presents an improved DLAC method for damage localization technique applied to a conceptual mechatronic system for laparoscopic surgery.
