This research studies a substructure model updating approach. Requiring modal testing data from only part of a large structure (i.e. a substructure), finite element model parameters for the substructure can be updated. Prior to updating, Craig-Bampton transform is adopted to condense the entire structural model into the substructure (currently being instrumented and to be updated) and the residual structure. Finite element model of the substructure remains at high resolution, while dynamic behavior of the residual structure is approximated using only a limited number of dominant mode shapes. To update the condensed structural model, physical parameters in the substructure and modal parameters of the residual structure are chosen as optimization variables; minimization of the modal dynamic residual is chosen as the optimization objective. An iterative linearization procedure is adopted for efficiently solving the optimization problem. The proposed substructure model updating approach is validated through numerical simulation with two plane structures
