SS02: System Identification and Structural Health Monitoring
Organiser: Prof. Guido De Roeck, University of Leuven, Belgium
Summary: This special session will cover theoretical, computational and experimental work on linear/nonlinear system identification and structural health monitoring (SHM), with applications in structural dynamics within earthquake, civil, mechanical, aerospace and related engineering fields. Emphasis will be on vibration-based monitoring, while not excluding other SHM methodologies. Relevant topics include new experimental techniques for in-situ health monitoring, data analysis, modal identification, model updating, damage identification, statistical methods, stochastic simulation techniques for uncertainty quantification/propagation, damage prognosis, and structural reliability updating using measurements. SEMC 2016 will be the ideal forum for sharing the results of the most recent scientific research. The expected attendance of key players from both the development and the application side will ensure that this session will offer a real state-of-the-art view of SHM.
