Abstract. Vibration of buildings can be regarded as the wave propagation in the vertical direction. Stiffness deterioration of structures due to damages could be altered by the changes in velocity and attenuation of the traveling waves. Previous studies have proposed methods to construct a new wavefield from the original wavefield of the building, in which the propagation path of the waves can be more easily recognized. In this study, firstly, we construct the wavefield with the virtual source at the top of the building (deconvolved wave), which consist of one acausal up-going wave and one causal down-going wave. Then, the changes of deconvolved waves over time at the base and inter floors are visualized. Finally, the CNN is constructed to automatically recognize the change of the visualized wavefield. To generate training data of the CNN model, multivariate nonlinear vibration simulation, reconstruction of the wavefield and visualization of the wavefield based on the vibration data was performed. To validate the trained CNN, the data of a shake table test on a 1/3 scaled 18-story steel frame building is used. As the damage progresses, the changes in the wavefield are recognized.
