Abstract: The identification of non-linear systems is an important topic in structural health monitoring of structures undergoing non-stationary behavior. In general, a non-linear or hysteretic response is typical for buildings, bridges, dampers and structural elements not only as a consequence of strong excitations (i. e. earthquake), but also for low to medium loading levels, due to the constitutive behavior of structural elements or joints. This paper focuses on the non-linear identification of a RC beam-column joint…
