Strain Measurements Based Finite Element Model Updating
Analytical models of the actual structure often differ greatly from their as-built counterparts. Model updating techniques improve the predictions of the behavior of the actual structure by identifying and correcting the uncertain parameters of the analytical model. This paper presents a new model updating technique to improve the finite element analysis model by updating design parameters using strain measurement based on affine scaling interior Algorithm. Static strain measurements are more reliable and realistic than acceleration data in practice. Numerical examples are presented to study the application of the method.
