This study presents and reviews the technical literature and previous studies for the past three decades on structural damage identification using ANNs and measured FRFs as inputs. Much of the previous studies have used modal parameters to ascertain the success of damage identification. However, significant information may not be properly represented through the application of modal parameters. With this in mind, the direct use of frequency domain data in terms of the Frequency Response Functions (FRFs) seems more appropriate. Recent studies indicate that ANNs can be trained on measured FRFs of healthy and damaged models of structure to assess the condition of the structure. According to this review, it is clear that there have been numerous studies which have gone on to apply the ANNs on FRF data of structures in the field of damage identification and it has been shown that ANNs using FRFs can provide several advantages over the modal parameters and damage identification has subsequently become much improved.
