Abstract

A damage-identification benchmark test is proposed on a real-size steel frame with reinforced concrete floors. The specimen has been built at the ELSA laboratory and will be damaged through seismic and cyclic testing as part of the BASILICATA research project for the evaluation of the seismic resistance of this kind of structure. The benchmark data will include the modal test of the specimen at at least two different damage states. The initial modal test on the undamaged structure has already been performed and is described in this paper. With respect to the previous ELSA benchmark on a similar structure called STEELQUAKE, the current one includes more floors and elements as well as more degrees of freedom (DoFs) at every element for the modal test.
