Correcting Computer Models Of Structures For Improved Prediction Of Dynamic Response

Engineered structures are present in almost all aspects of daily life. The houses and buildings in which we live and work, the cars we drive, aircraft, power plants, bridges, and dams are among the structures which are integral to society. In order to design and build structures which will serve efficiently and safely, engineers make use of computer models called finite element models, or simply FEM. These detailed models can represent, to a high degree of fidelity, the complex geometric...
