Numerical updating on collapse simulation of multi-story buildings through hybrid testing
by Negrete Padilla, Miguel, Ph.D., University of New Hampshire, 2015, 172; 3728014
Abstract (Summary)

The present dissertation introduces an innovative numerical updating approach within fully simulated hybrid testing with substructuring techniques through collapse. The proposed approach is based on utilizing the measured response from the experimental substructure to update during the test the parameters of the components of the numerical substructure. The main research objective is to improve the ability to predict and simulate collapse through hybrid testing with substructuring techniques. The proposed numerical updating approach demonstrates to be capable of reliably reduce the epistemic uncertainty existent on the calibration of initial component parameters of the numerical substructure, especially when the system is near the limit state of collapse.
