Damage Identification of Nonlinear Structure with Unknown Excitations Using Quadratic Sum Square Error with Ar Model

Abstract : The ability to accurately identify structural parameters, either on-line or almost on-line, based on vibration data measured from sensors, is essential for the structural health monitoring system. The problem is quite challenging, in particular when the external excitations are not completely measured and when the structural system is nonlinear. In practical applications, external excitations (inputs), such as seismic excitations, wind loads, traffic loads, etc., may not be measured or may not be measurable, and the structure may not always be linear. In this paper, a newly proposed parametric identification method, referred to as the quadratic sum-squares error with AR model (QSSE-AR), is used for estimating structural parameters of a nonlinear elastic structure and a nonlinear hysteretic structure. In this approach, external excitations and some structural responses may not be measured. The accuracy and effectiveness of the proposed approach will be demonstrated by numerical simulations without the measurement of external excitations. The simulation results indicate that the proposed damage detection technique is capable of identifying structural parameters, as well as predicting the unknown external excitations.
