Civil structures, subject to external excitation, are prone to damage and deterioration during their service lives. Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) has been proving to be a suitable application domain for wireless sensor networks, whose techniques attempt to autonomously evaluate the integrity of structures, occasionally aiming at detecting and localizing damage. To ensure structural integrity it is desirable to monitor these structures to detect the existence, location, and severity of any damage in real time. In this paper, an algorithm is proposed in multi-programming languages, which works in frequency domain, supported by multilevel information fusion techniques to enable detection and localization of damage using the raw dynamic response data acquired using suitable wireless sensor network.
