Abstract:Finite Element (FE) model updating is initially developed to update numerical models of structures to match their experimentally measured modal properties (i.e., natural frequencies and modes). In FE model updating, uncertain physical parameters of a structure are modified so that the discrepancies between the numerically estimated and experimentally measured modal properties are minimized. The process of updating is employed not only in parameter identification; it can also be developed for structural damage … Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
