Abstract

An innovative substructure approach is proposed for estimating the structural parameters of shear structures from the acceleration responses of individual substructures. Two parallel methods are created to form single-degree-of-freedom models of each substructure. The behavioral characteristics of these substructure models chiefly depend on the structural parameters of the edges of the component substructure, which is separate from the shear structure. To obtain structural parameters from the substructure accelerations, discrete substructure models with accelerations are generated using Newmark's method and are found similar to the autoregressive moving average with exogenous (ARMAX) inputs models. Sophisticated techniques for solving ARMAX models are used to process the accelerations and to extract the structural parameters of the substructures. A linear relationship among model coefficients of the discrete substructure models and ARMAX models is discovered that provides an accurate and simple way to identify all the substructure parameters. A numerical simulation of a 10-story shear structure during earthquake is performed to verify this substructure approach, where the factors of the size of the substructure and the noise disturbance are considered. Finally, this substructure approach is used to identify a structural model and reproduce the structural responses of a five-story three-dimensional structure in a shaking-table experiment.
