A stochastic approach is proposed for estimating the variability in structural parameters present in a large set of metal-frame structures, given only measurements of modal frequency performed on a subset of the structures. The key step is a new statistical model relating simulation and experiment, including terms representing not only the measurement noise… CONTINUE READING
