Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) based on Automated Operational Modal Analysis (A-OMA) has gained increasing importance in the conservation of heritage structures over recent decades. In this context, finite element model updating techniques using modal data constitute a commonly used approach for damage identification. Nevertheless, the large number of simulations usually involved in the associated minimization problem hinders the application to real-time condition assessment. This is especially critical for historic buildings, where the modelling of complex geometries involves large computational burdens. Alternatively, surrogate models offer an efficient solution to replace computationally demanding numerical models and so perform continuous model updating. In this light, this paper presents a surrogate-based model updating approach for online assessment of historic buildings and its application to a medieval masonry tower, the Sciri Tower in Perugia (Italy). Using modal properties identified by A-OMA, the proposed approach allows the continuous fitting of certain damage-sensitive parameters of the structure. To do so, three different surrogate models are considered, including the quadratic response surface method, Kriging, and Random Sampling High-Dimensional Model Representation, and their effectiveness is compared from an SHM perspective. The reported results demonstrate the suitability of the proposed methodology for tracking the temperature-dependent intrinsic properties of the tower.

Abstract

Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) based on Automated Operational Modal Analysis (A-OMA) has gained increasing importance in the conservation of heritage structures over recent decades. In this context, finite element model updating techniques using modal data constitute a commonly used approach for damage identification. Nevertheless, the large number of simulations usually involved in the associated minimization problem hinders the application to real-time condition assessment. This is especially critical for historic buildings, where the modelling of complex geometries involves large computational burdens. Alternatively, surrogate models offer an efficient solution to replace computationally demanding numerical models and so perform continuous model updating. In this light, this paper presents a surrogate-based model updating approach for online assessment of historic buildings and its application to a medieval masonry tower, the Sciri Tower in Perugia (Italy). Using modal properties identified by A-OMA, the proposed approach allows the continuous fitting of certain damage-sensitive parameters of the structure. To do so, three different surrogate models are considered, including the quadratic response surface method, Kriging, and Random Sampling High-Dimensional Model Representation, and their effectiveness is compared from an SHM perspective. The reported results demonstrate the suitability of the proposed methodology for tracking the temperature-dependent intrinsic properties of the tower.
