A Study on an Inverse Estimation Method for Solving Soil-Structure Interaction System


Article Preview

This paper describes a numerical algorithm to determine the responses of the soil-structure interaction system due to known ground motion acceleration. A ground motion acceleration of known magnitude was suddenly applied to the soil-structure interaction system by direct method and then utilized this displacement to estimate others relative displacements by a Kalman filter technique. In order to examine the accuracy of the proposed method, the difference material soil-structure system is subjected to the actual ground motion acceleration. The results show that this method has the advantages of stability and accuracy.
