Abstract : This paper addresses the issue of quantifying uncertainty bounds when updating the finite element model of a mechanical structure from measurement data. The problem arises as to assess the validity of the parameters identification and the accuracy of the results obtained. In this paper, a covariance estimation procedure is proposed about the updated parameters of a finite element model, which propagates the data-related covariance to the parameters by considering a first-order sensitivity analysis. In particular, this propagation is performed through each iteration step of the updating minimization problem, by taking into account the covariance between the updated parameters and the data-related quantities. Numerical simulations on a beam show the feasibility and the effectiveness of the method.
