It has already been done for you, have a look at DSSP:


  The DSSP program was designed by Wolfgang Kabsch and Chris Sander to
  standardize secondary structure assignment. The DSSP database is a
  database of secondary structure assignments (and much more) for all of
  the entries in the Protein Data Bank (PDB).

Databases files:
