Abstract:As a combination of statistical and mathematical techniques, response surface methodology gives explicit functions to express the relationship between the inputs and outputs of a physical system. This methodology has been widely applied to design optimization, response prediction and model validation but so far little literature related to its application in structural damage identification has been found. Therefore this paper presents a systematic damage identification procedure consisting of four steps of fe… Show more
