Identification of the Best Modal Parameters and Strategies for FE Model Updating
The use of numerical models as basis to assemble or modify all kind of new structures is increasing over the last years. This has as benefit that it reduces the number of expensive, physical prototypes. These numerical models however must be verified and validated against measured data. Updating is generally needed to guarantee accurate correspondence with reality. This paper focuses on an exhaust. It describes the different steps of the complete process from the acquisition till the updating. On the measurement side, some typical acquisition measures and an efficient approach to handle (slightly) inconsistent data sets is explained. On the numerical side, it is investigated how to achieve the final updated exhaust with physical relevant characteristics.
