International audienceThis paper discusses the use of evidence-based classifiers for the identification of damage. In particular, a neural network approach to Dempster-Shafer theory is demonstrated on the damage location problem for an aircraft wing. The results are compared with a probabilistic classifier based on a multi-layer perceptron neural network and shown to give similar results. The question of fusing classifiers is considered and it is shown that a combination of the Dempster-Shafer and MLP classifiers gives a significant improvement over the use of individual classifiers for the aircraft wing data
