A survey is presented herein of some recent research contributions to the methodology of inverse structural analysis based on statical tests for diagnosis of possibly damaged structures and for mechanical characterization of materials in diverse industrial environments. The following issues are briefly considered: identifications of parameters in material models and of residual stresses on the basis of indentation experiments; mechanical characterization of free-foils and laminates by cruciform and compression tests and digital image correlation measurements; diagnosis, both superficially and in depth, of concrete dams, possibly affected by alkali-silica-reaction or otherwise damaged.

Abstract

A survey is presented herein of some recent research contributions to the methodology of inverse structural analysis based on statical tests for diagnosis of possibly damaged structures and for mechanical characterization of materials in diverse industrial environments. The following issues are briefly considered: identifications of parameters in material models and of residual stresses on the basis of indentation experiments; mechanical characterization of free-foils and laminates by cruciform and compression tests and digital image correlation measurements; diagnosis, both superficially and in depth, of concrete dams, possibly affected by alkali-silica-reaction or otherwise damaged.
Inverse analysis; parameter identification; digital image correlation; proper orthogonal decomposition (POD); trust region algorithm; artificial neural networks
