Paper Abstract

Dynamic behaviors of a 1-story and 4-story steel structures subject to multi-dimensional ground motion excitations were experimentally investigated by using a shaking table. Linear and nonlinear structural responses were obtained as observation data for the identification. Dynamics characteristics of the model structures were identified using the adaptive H(infinity ) filter, which was developed for identifying structural systems with non-stationary dynamic characteristics by adding the function of memory fading (forgetting factor) for past observation data to the H(infinity ) filter. Identification results show that the H(infinity ) filtering technique are very efficient for identifying linear and nonlinear structural systems. Especially, the nonlinear behavior of the model can be traced effectively.
