Paper Abstract

Supervising and health monitoring of engineering structures presupposes application of experimental mechanics methods. They have to yield the data-base, i.e. the state of displacement and strain respectively to control the design data and to determine the internal parameters like the stress-state, the structural response, the reliability, safety and probable service-life. To obtain these finally wanted information the measured quantities are to evaluate. This leads to inverse problems, the solution of which requires proper mathematical/numerical methods. With concern to truss- and frame-works as well as to plane- and shell- structures some algorithms will be presented, which have been proven by a few examples.
