Abstract

This article proposes a new system identification (SI) method using the modal responses obtained from the dynamic responses of a structure for estimating modal parameters. Since the proposed SI method visually extracts the mode shape of a structure through the plotting of modal responses based on measured data points, the complex calculation process for the correlation and the decomposition for vibration measurements required in SI methods can be avoided. Also, without dependence on configurations of SI methods inducing variations of modal parameters, mode shapes and modal damping ratios can be stably extracted through direct implementation of modal response. To verify the feasibility of the proposed method, the modal parameters of a shear frame were extracted from modal displacement data obtained from a vibration test, and the results were compared with those obtained from the existing frequency domain SI method. The proposed method introduces the maximum modal response ratio of each mode computed by modal displacement data, and from this, the contribution of each mode and each measured location to the overall structural response is indirectly evaluated. Moreover, this article proposes a model updating method establishing the error functions based on the differences between the analytical model and measurement for the natural frequencies and the modal responses reflecting both mode shape and modal contribution. The validity of the proposed method is verified through the response prediction and modal contributions of the models obtained from model updating based on dynamic displacement from a shaking table test for a shear-type test frame.
