The developed approach exploits the advantages of both groups: it makes use of a nonparametric model of the monitored structure based on experimentally measured data, but it allows parametrically expressed modifications to be identified. In [1], a time-domain version of the approach has been proposed and experimentally verified. It proved to be accurate, and thanks to the iterative CGLS solution scheme, provided a good control over numerical regularization of the computed time-domain response [8]. However, the fundamental equation is a system of linear integral equations of the Volterra type, whose solution is significantly time-consuming. This paper develops and verifies a frequency-domain approach, which uses the fast Fourier transform (FFT) to solve the equations. A significant reduction in computation time is attained (up to four orders of magnitude). However, this is at the cost of losing the control of the process of numerical regularization: regularization in frequency domain seems to be relatively weakly researched and understood. The aim of this study is to test the accuracy ... |

A natural further step is a lab verification based on experimental data. IPPT Reports 4f/2013 2 Introduction This paper presents a derivation and reports on a numerical verification of a frequency-domain version of a nonparametric approach to identification of added masses in truss structures. The general approach has been recently developed in IPPT PAN [1–3], and it is based on the essentially nonparametric methodology of the virtual distortion method (VDM) [4]. The monitored structure is characterized in a purely experimental way, by means of its impulse response functions. As a result, no parametric numerical modelling is required, which obviates the need for model updating and fine-tuning that is typical for other model-based methods.
