Abstract

This paper presents selected results of a parametric study illustrating the impact of the experimental errors occurring when operating the pseudo-dynamic test (PSD) method on complex non-linear numerical structures. Two implementations (iterative and non-iterative) of the alpha-Newmark time integration scheme are considered, in relation to the results of an analytical study. The robustness of these implementations in a case involving a sudden loss of strength is also illustrated.
