Paper Title:
Finite Element Model Updating of Space Grid Structures
  Abstract

The aim of updating models is to generate improved numerical models which may be applied in order to predict actual dynamic behaviors of the structure. The approach of numerical predictions to the behavior of a physical system is limited by the assumptions used in the development of the mathematical model. Model updating is about correcting invalid assumptions by processing vibration test results. Updating by improving the physical meaning of the model requires the application of considerable physical insight in the choice of parameters to update and the arrangement of constraints, force inputs and response measurements in the vibration test. The choice of updating parameters is the most important and the numerical predictions should be sensitive to small changes in the parameters. So methods used in model updating places a demand that the mass, stiffness and damping terms should be based on physically meaningful parameters. Using the structure frequency and local modal shape acquired from structural time-history responses, a model updating method of space grid structures was established in this paper. A numerical example is provided to prove the accuracy of this method. The results show that the method can be effectively used to correct the finite element model of space grid structures.
