9 June 2000 Updating FEM using state-space-based signal processing techniques
Author Affiliations +
Until recently, attempts to update Finite Element Models (FEM) of large structures based upon recording structural motions were mostly ad hoc, requiring a large amount of engineering experience and skill. Studies have been undertaken at LLNL to use state-space based signal processing techniques to locate the existence and type of model mismatches common in FEM. Two different methods (Gauss-Newton gradient search and extended Kalman filter) will be explored, and the preliminary results from a simulated 10 degree of freedom (DOF) building model will be discussed.
