Fuzzy Inference Systems for Automatic Classification of Earthquake Damages


This paper presents efficient models in the area of damage potential classification of seismic signals. After an earthquake, one of the most important actions that authorities must take is to inspect structures and estimate the degree of damages. The interest is obvious for several reasons such as public safety, economical recourses management and infrastructure. This approach provides a comparative study between the Mamdani-type and Sugeno-type fuzzy inference systems (FIS). The fuzzy models use a set of artificial accelerograms in order to classify structural damages in a specific structure. Previous studies propose a set of twenty well-known seismic parameters which are essential for description of the seismic excitation. The proposed fuzzy systems use an input vector of twenty seismic parameters instead of the earthquake accelerogram and produce classification rates up to 90%. Experimental results indicate that these systems are able to classify the structural damages in structures accurately. Both of them produce the same level of correct classification rates but the Mamdani-type has a slight superiority.
