Forthcoming articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

Online First articles are published online here, before they appear in a journal issue. Online First articles are fully citeable, complete with a DOI. They can be cited, read, and downloaded. Online First articles are published as Open Access (OA) articles to make the latest research available as early as possible.

Open AccessArticles marked with this Open Access icon are Online First articles. They are freely available and openly accessible to all without any restriction except the ones stated in their respective CC licenses.

  • Bayesian model updating-based and simulation-based system identification of shear-bending model for high-rise building   Order a copy of this article
    by Kohei Fujita, Yuha Hoshi, Izuru Takewaki 
    Abstract: A new system identification method is proposed for high-rise buildings based on the original simulation-assisted Bayesian model updating using a shear-bending model (SB model). The shear and bending stiffnesses of the SB model can be obtained by applying the inverse-eigenmode method based on the fundamental natural mode of the target building. A probabilistic SB model is investigated where the mean values of bending stiffnesses are controlled by the stiffness ratio of the bending stiffness to the shear stiffness. In this paper, a simulation-assisted Bayesian model-updating approach is proposed to identify the fundamental natural mode shape of rotation angles based on the limited-point floor rotation angle responses. The Bayes formula is applied to additionally observed floor rotation angles for evaluating the posterior probability distribution of the fundamental natural mode shape. To investigate the applicability of the proposed method, numerical examples of a 20-story building frame subjected to micro-tremor are shown.
