Abstract

Within model-based approaches to structural health monitoring (SHM), numerical simulations must be tailored to continuously adapt to the degradation processes and to the possibly changing environment. This model update stage of the analysis brings two competing requirements: the accuracy of the model, with a more detailed description of the phenomena required where damage is supposed to take place; the efficiency of the model, to reduce the overall computational burden and allow for real-time (or close to real-time) computing. Without resorting to AI-based strategies, approaches solely based on proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) and domain decomposition (DD) techniques proved rather efficient in handling the aforementioned trade-off between the diverging requirements of accuracy and efficiency. In this work, we discuss a further improvement over our recently proposed methodology that consists of: a DD of the entire structure into sub-regions, which can be designed to decouple regions more prone to get damaged from regions that are instead less affected by the degradation processes; a POD-based selective model order reduction for all the domains, with adjustable and heterogeneous accuracy requirements. The approach is assessed through an illustrative example related to beam dynamics, with results provided in terms of both accuracy and computational efficiency, or speedup with respect to the full-order model.
