The PyLOC application permits finding the crack depth and severity even in the case that the beam has non-ideal clamping. The application is free to be downloaded and used. In addition, we provide simulation data in the form of natural frequencies for healthy and damaged beams, which permit testing the application. The data is obtained both for a cantilevered beam, as well as for a beam clamped at both ends.
