Defects in electrical networks are effectively modeled in all the mentioned approaches as a loss of conductance in branches. The changes of conductance (defect coefficient) may be tracked in the continuous range from zero (break in the network) to one (intact conductance). 5 give a more detailed insight into the nonstructural applications of the VDM.

Recently, an application of the VDM to probabilistic analysis has been developed. Di Paola et al. [52, 53] use the VDM to model uncertainty of parameters in truss structures. 3 Applications of the VDM to Nonstructural Systems In Reference [54], closed-loop water networks, assuming a steady-state flow, are modeled using the VDM. For water heads measured in all nodes of the network, an algorithm for detecting leakage in the midpoint of a branch was proposed. VDM sensitivity enabled a quadratic programming tool to be employed to solve the problem.

In this way, the influence matrix stores information about the entire structure properties including topology, material characteristics and boundary conditions, in calculation of the structural response. Note that the static influence matrix for statically determinate structures becomes an identity matrix (zero redundancy means no interrelations between members) and the VDM loses its major tool. For truss structures, the strain influence matrix Diεj is quadratic, nonsymmetric and singular. Making use of Betti’s mutual work principle it can easily be proved that the matrix Ai li Diεj becomes symmetric, where Ai and li denote the initial cross-sectional area and element length, respectively.
