A Bayesian Probabilistic Approach to Structural Health Monitoring (7 pages)
By M.W. Vanik, The Aerospace Corporation; and J.L. Beck, California Institute of Technology  

Conference: 1998 IMAC XVI - 16th International Modal Analysis Conference
Some general issues associated with on-line structural health monitoring are discussed. In order to address the problem of determining the existence and location of damage in the pres-ence of uncertainties, a global model-based structural health monitoring method which utilizes Bayesian probabilistic in-ference is developed. The results of tests using simulated data are described.
