Air vehicles flying at hypersonic speeds encounter extreme thermal, aerodynamic and acoustic loads, utilizing thermal protection systems to shield the main structure from these 1oads. One type of failure in a mechanically attached thermal protection system is fastener failure. Determining structural health monitoring on the fastener health of the thermal protection system is needed and can be completed by analyzing changes in the dynamic characteristics of the system due to fastener failure. The damage detection metrics include the existing modal parameters-modal assurance criterion MAC, partial PMAC, and coordinate CMAC-as well as two new modal parameters-normalized coordinate MAC and normalized coordinate MAC X summation were investigated. Two new modal parameters were formulated to identify mode shape changes in a structure due to global damage to the structure. Two damage states caused a minimal change to the low-frequency structural dynamics and could not be localized with any of the investigated damage metrics.
