This paper presents a technique for irregular plate and regular dam damage detection based on combination of wavelet with adoptive neuro fuzzy inference system (ANFIS). Many damage detection methods need response of structures (such as the displacements, stresses or mode shapes) before and after damage, but this method only requires response of structures after damage, otherwise many damage detection methods study regular plate but this method also studies irregular plate. First, the structure

Second, the responses at the finite element points with regular distances are obtained by using ANFIS. The damage zone is represented as the elements with reduced elasticity modules. Then these responses of structures are analysed with 2D wavelet transform. It is shown that matrix detail coefficients of 2D wavelet transform can specified the damage zone of plates and regular dams by perturbation in the damaged area.
