Abstract

This study explores the possibilities for inverse analysis and modelling from data of a nonlinearly vibrating structure. We are suggesting a statistical approach based on singular spectrum analysis (SSA). The method is based on a free decay response, when the structure is given an initial disturbance and is left to vibrate on its own. The measured vibration response is decomposed into new variables, the principal components, which are used to uncover oscillatory patterns in the structural response. In this study an application of the methodology for the purposes of delamination detection in a composite beam is explored.
