Aiming at the crack damage of concrete in GFRP tubular concrete column, a method based on piezoelectric wave method was developed to monitor the crack damage. By transmitting and receiving stress waves from a pair of piezoelectric ceramic sensors embedded in GFRP tubular concrete, the damage degree of GFRP tubular concrete columns was evaluated by using wavelet packets to obtain the stress wave energy and damage index under different load levels. By analyzing the change of stress wave energy and damage index of concrete with different strength under different loads, the time-domain signal response, load-energy curve and load-damage index curve were obtained. In this test, four test pieces were designed according to different concrete strength grades. Two piezoelectric ceramic sensors were placed in the test piece and used to monitor the test piece under static loading. After the static loading was completed, the GFRP tube was severely broken and peeled off from the concrete. A large number of cracks appeared on the concrete surface. The results show that: The test results were consistent with the actual damage of the specimen. The development trend of concrete damage in GFRP tubular concrete columns was well revealed by the wave method.
