Blast Load Input Estimation of the Medium Girder Bridgeusing Inverse Method
Innovative adaptive weighted input estimation inverse methodology for estimating theunknown time-varying blast loads on the truss structure system is presented. This method isbased on the Kalman filter and the recursive least square estimator (RLSE). The filter models thesystem dynamics in a linear set of state equations. The state equations of the truss structureare constructed using the finite element method. The input blast loads of the truss structuresystem are inverse estimated from the system responses measured at two distinct nodes. Thiswork presents an efficient weighting factor applied in the RLSE, which is capable of providinga reasonable estimation results. The results obtained from the simulations show that the methodis effective in estimating input blast loads, so has great stability and precision.
