A method for the parameter estimation of structures was d~veloped in a companion pape~. It used subsets of static applied forces and strain measurements and successfully Identified structural element stlffnesses. In the presence of noisy measurements, the selection of these s~b~ts drastically affect the accu~acy of the parameter estimates. In addition,(More)
Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) using nondestructive test (NDT) data has become very promising for finite element (FE) model updating, model verification, structural evaluation, and damage assessment. This research presents a multiresponse structural parameter estimation method for the FE model updating using data obtained from a nondestructive test on a(More)
Genetic Algorithms (GA) are powerful tools for solving large and complicated optimization problems. Objective functions used in parameter estimation (PE) are commonly nonlinear due to available measurements at a limited number of degrees of freedom for a structure. Sparse measurements create a fairly complicated objective function surface that requires a(More)
