The research work presented and the results obtained in this dissertation contribute significantly to the development of robust and reliable vibration-based structural health monitoring systems for large and complex real-world structures.Depending on each particular FE model updating problem, the weight factors jw applied to the various modal residuals can be ... In practice, the weight factors are usually obtained as the reciprocals of the standard deviation or coefficient-of- variation of the ... Therefore the sensitivity-based model updating techniques have attracted more and more attention in the civil engineering research community.
