12th International Conference on Applications of Statistics and Probability in Civil Engineering, ICASP12 Vancouver, Canada, July 12-15, 2015 1Probabilistic Reliability Assessment of Real-Time Hybrid Simulation of Structures with Degradation Hezareigh Ryan Graduate Student, School of Engineering, San Francisco State Univ., San Francisco, USA Cheng Chen Assistant Professor, School of Engineering, San Francisco State Univ., San Francisco, USA Samuel Richardson Graduate Student, School of Engineering, San Francisco State Univ., San Francisco, USA ABSTRACT: Improving seismic performance of structures and seismic design codes requires that laboratory experiments truthfully replicate the seismic structural response. Real-time hybrid simulation provides a viable alternative for shake table testing that allows more economical and efficient seismic performance evaluation in size-limited laboratories. Not well-understood critical parts of the structure are tested physically as experimental substructures in the laboratory, while well-behaved parts are numerically modeled by computer programs as analytical substructures. Servo-hydraulic actuators impose desired responses onto the experimental substructures. Restoring forces from substructures are integrated by a numerical algorithm to enable the replication of the entire structural response through large- or full-scale component tests. However, actuator delay causes a deviation from the exact structural response. This creates a great challenge for reliability assessment of real-time hybrid simulation results since the actual structural response is not available before or after the experiment for an immediate comparison. This paper presents a probabilistic reliability assessment approach for real-time hybrid simulation of structures with degradation. With the generalized Bouc-Wen model to emulate strength and stiffness degradation of structures close to collapse, computational simulation are conducted on single-degree-of-freedom structures subjected to selected ground motions with different intensities. Different natural frequencies are considered as well as slight, moderate and significant degradation. A lognormal distribution for critical delay corresponding to target accuracy is then established to enable probabilistic reliability assessment without actual response known a priori. Examples of applying the proposed probabilistic approach are also presented in this paper. 1. INTRODUCTION Earthquakes pose a threat to structures, their content, and their occupants. Although human death and injury are of highest concern, earthquakes can result in significant economic loss. Improving seismic structural performance thus is of great significance for earthquake engineering community. This cannot be achieved without seismic structural testing which could be prohibitively expensive. The most widely used methods include quasi-static testing and shake table testing. The former is a more economical option, while the latter, though much more expensive, is more suitable for evaluating seismic structural response, especially when testing with rate-dependent components such as dampers. Another more recent approach is real-time hybrid simulation (RTHS) which provides a much more viable alternative for shake table testing. RTHS takes advantage of the knowledge available on the behavior of well-understood members and components by substructuring them from the prototype structure and modeling them analytically. The rest of the structure, the new, more complex, and not well-known components, are experimentally tested in the 12th International Conference on Applications of Statistics and Probability in Civil Engineering, ICASP12 Vancouver, Canada, July 12-15, 2015 2laboratory. Equilibrium and compatibility conditions are imposed at the boundaries between the analytical and experimental substructures (Chen et al. 2009). Servo-hydraulic actuators then impose desired responses onto the experimental substructures. The resulting restoring forces are measured and fed back to an integration algorithm to calculate the structural response for the following time steps. RTHS thus not only allows testing of rate dependent components, it also costs significantly less than shake table tests of similar scales. The actuators used in RTHS have intrinsic delay to the displacement command due to servo-hydraulic dynamics. This delay, even though in millisecond (ms) magnitude, could significantly affect the experimental results from real-time hybrid simulation. Figure 1 presents the discrepancy for a single-degree-of-freedom (SDOF) structure between the true (exact) response and the response from real-time hybrid simulation with two milliseconds delay in actuator response. A maximum difference of 45.5 mm can be observed corresponding to 54.1% of maximum displacement of exact response. It is therefore necessary to have actuator delay compensation to achieve reliable RTHS results. However, experimental studies have indicated that even the most sophisticated compensation method cannot completely eliminate actuator delay induced tracking error (Chen 2010, Chen et al. 2012). It is therefore important to perform reliability assessment of RTHS results, especially when the actual structural response is not known a priori for comparison. Chen and Sharma (2012) studied the accuracy of RTHS for SDOF structures and proposed a probabilistic approach for reliability assessment of RTHS results with presence of actuator delay. Chen et al. (2013) further investigated the effect of nonlinearity and improved the probabilistic reliability assessment approach to account for different ductility observed in RTHS results. However, these studies focused on nonlinear structural behavior without degradation. Recent earthquake engineering research (Lignos and Krawinkler 2011, Hashemi and Mosqueda 2014) has brought attention to structural performance close to collapse which often experiences strength and stiffness degradation. In this study, nonlinear behavior of strength and stiffness degradation close to collapse is considered more extensively to validate the probabilistic approach for reliability assessment of RTHS results with the presence of actuator delay. Figure 1. Comparison of structural responses for a linear SDOF Structure with 2 Hz natural frequency 2. GENERALIZED BOUC-WEN MODEL In order to replicate the nonlinear behavior of structures near collapse, the generalized Bouc-Wen model is utilized in this study. During earthquakes, the response of the structure not only depends on the instantaneous deformation but also on the history of the deformation (Li et al. 2004). A mathematical model to describe this behavior was introduced by Bouc (1967) and Wen (1980). More recently, Baber and Wen (1981) and subsequently Baber and Noori (1985 and 1986) improved the model by incorporating strength and stiffness degradation and pinching respectively. This generalized Bouc-Wen model includes thirteen parameters as described in Table 1, which control the hysteresis shape. In this study, the generalized Bouc-Wen model is utilized to replicate the nonlinear behavior of structures near collapse.

SIMULATION OF LINEAR-ELASTIC STRUCTURES The effects of actuator delay on RTHS results of a linear elastic SDOF structure are first investigated. The prototype structure is assumed to have an inherent 2% viscous damping ratio. The equation of motion for such a SDOF can be derived from Eq. (1) as: xሷ ሺtሻ cxሶ ሺtሻ kxሺtሻ ൌ െxሷ ሺtሻ (5a) With the actuator delay existing in RTHS, the equation of motion can be modified as xሷ ሺtሻ cxሶ ሺtሻ kxሺt െ τሻ ൌ െxሷ ሺtሻ (5b) where τ denotes the actuator delay. A total of 44 far field records from FEMA P695 (2009) are used as ground motion inputs. These ground motions were selected by FEMA based on criteria such as source type, site conditions, and source magnitude. Names and magnitudes of these records are provided in Table 3. Table 3.Far field ground motion records 3.1 Accuracy Index In order to analyze the simulation results, an accuracy index called MAX error was used, which is defined using the exact and the delayed displacement according to the equation below: MAX ൌ ୫ୟ୶ ሺ|୶౮౪ି୶ౚౢ|ሻ୫ୟ୶ ሺ|୶౮౪|ሻ ൈ 100% (6) where xୣ୶୲ is the exact response from Eq. (5a); and xୢୣ୪ is the delayed response calculated from Eq. (5b). Chen et al. (2010) used a similar index for analyzing actuator control error when evaluating various compensation methods. It is also worth pointing that other formats of error such as root-mean-square is also used in this study but not presented herein due to limited length of paper. 3.2 Critical Delay Distribution Critical delay is defined as the maximum delay that would lead to a MAX error close to a desired value. Critical delays corresponding to a target value of 10% are derived from computational simulation and then fit to a lognormal distribution using the maximum likelihood method (MLE). Figure 3. Histogram, fitted lognormal distribution, and Q-Q plot of the critical delay for a linear elastic SDOF structure with 1 Hz natural frequency. Figure 4. Histogram, fitted lognormal distribution, and Q-Q plot of the critical delay for a linear elastic SDOF structure with 1.75 Hz natural frequency. Figures 3(a) and 4(a) present the histogram and the fitted lognormal distributions of critical delay for the linear elastic SDOF structure with 1.0 and 1.75 Hz natural frequency, respectively. Figures 3(b) and 4(b) present the quantile-quantile (Q-Q) plot as a goodness of fit for the lognormal distribution (Easton 1990).

The probability that RTHS results have the error exceeding the target MAX error value is defined as the probability that the critical delay is smaller than the actual actuator delay in RTHS results. In this case the limit state function is written as given below: g = τ – d (7) where τ denotes the critical delay corresponding to the desired MAX error and d denotes the delay observed during RTHS. The probability of failure is thus the area under the distribution curve up to the delay τ as shown in Figure 5. It can be observed that the larger the actual delay in RTHS results, the higher the probability that the experimental results have MAX error exceeding the target value. Figure 5. Probability of failure according to the PDF of Critical delay distribution. 4. NON-LINEAR SDOF WITH NO DEGRADATION For the purpose of comparison, Bouc-Wen parameters are selected for no stiffness or strength degradation. Figure 6 presents MAX error corresponding to the ground motion recorded at the Canyon County-WLC station during the Northridge with peak ground acceleration (PGA) of 0.48g for five different natural frequencies. It can be observed that for a given value of delay, as the natural frequency increases, MAX error increases. Therefore, compensating for actuator error becomes even more critical when testing stiffer structures with higher natural frequencies. Figure 6. MAX error for different actuator delay. 5. NON-LINEAR SDOF WITH STIFFNESS AND STRENGTH DEGRADATION Computational simulation is conducted for SDOF structure with stiffness and strength degradation. Figures 7(a), 8(a), and 9(a) present the histogram of the data along with the fitted lognormal distribution for a SDOF structure with slight, moderate and significant stiffness degradation, respectively. The SDOF structure has a natural frequency of 1 Hz. The lognormal distribution is observed to fit the data well. Figures 7(b), 8(b), 9(b) present the Q-Q plot for the corresponding cases. Slight deviation can be observed for the cases with moderate and significant stiffness degradation. Similar computational simulations are also conducted for SDOF structures with slight, moderate and significant strength degradation (Ryan 2014). Figure 10(a) presents the probability density function of the lognormal distribution for SDOF structures with slight, moderate, and significant stiffness degradation data in comparison with the Pf d 12th International Conference on Applications of Statistics and Probability in Civil Engineering, ICASP12 Vancouver, Canada, July 12-15, 2015 6no degradation. The SDOF has a natural frequency of 1 Hz. It is observed that the mode of the distribution shifts to the left with increase in stiffness degradation. This implies that for the same delay, probability of inaccurate RTHS results increases with stiffness degradation. In other words, accurate actuator compensation is more critical when the experimental structure has significant stiffness degradation. Figure 10(b) presents the lognormal distribution corresponding to a SDOF structure with slight, moderate, and significant strength degradation in comparison with no degradation. It is observed that the lognormal distributions are identical with almost same values of mean and standard deviations. This implies that for reliability assessment, the probabilistic approach does not necessarily need to account for strength degradation. Figure 7. Histogram, Distribution, and Q-Q plot for a SDOF structure with slight stiffness degradation and a natural frequency of 1 Hz. Figure 8. Histogram, Distribution, and Q-Q plot for a SDOF structure with moderate stiffness degradation and a natural frequency of 1 Hz. Figure 11 presents the distribution of critical delay for SDOF structures with different natural frequencies and significant stiffness degradation. The critical delay is determined for 10% MAX error. It can be observed that, with the increase of natural frequency, distribution for critical delay has smaller values of mean and standard deviation. Figure 9. Histogram, Distribution, and Q-Q plot for a SDOF structure with significant stiffness degradation and a natural frequency of 1 Hz. Figure 10. Comparison of critical delay distribution for different degradation cases for SDOF structure with natural frequency of 1 Hz. 6. DUCTILITY DEMAND AND CRITICAL DELAY The relationship between ductility demand and critical delay is examined. For each critical delay data, the ductility demand is determined. Figure 13 presents the Critical delay distribution for 12th International Conference on Applications of Statistics and Probability in Civil Engineering, ICASP12 Vancouver, Canada, July 12-15, 2015 7different ductility demands for an SDOF with significant stiffness degradation. As the ductility demand increases, the distribution shifts to the right and becomes more dispersed. Figure 11. Distribution of critical delay for SDOF structures with different natural frequencies. Figure 12. Critical delay distribution for different ductility demands for an SDOF with significant stiffness degradation. 7. EXAMPLES FOR PROBABILISTIC RELIABILITY ASSESSMENT To illustrate reliability analysis using the proposed approach, a ground motion recorded during the Gazli USSR earthquake at the 9201 Karakyr station with a PGA of 0.69g is used for analysis at scales of 1, 2, 3 and 4. The SDOF structure is assumed to have a linear elastic natural frequency of 4 Hz, a damping ratio of 2%, with significant stiffness degradation. For the reliability analysis, the mean and the standard deviation of the critical delay distribution for ductility demand are determined from Figure 13. These distribution parameters are then used to find the probability that MAX Error is above 10% for the delay values. Table 4 presents the reliability analysis results compared with the MAX error values for each combination of scale and delay. The probabilistic method is observed to provide satisfactory results.

SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION A probabilistic approach for reliability analysis is further investigated for RTHS of structures with 12th International Conference on Applications of Statistics and Probability in Civil Engineering, ICASP12 Vancouver, Canada, July 12-15, 2015 8stiffness and strength degradation when actuator delay is present in servo-hydraulic actuator response. The generalized Bouc-Wen model is used in computation simulation to emulate nonlinear structural behavior with slight, moderate and significant stiffness and strength degradation. Lognormal distributions are established for critical delay corresponding to target error index considering different natural frequencies and different ductility demands. Stiffness degradation is observed to affect the critical delay and therefore need to be accounted for in reliability analysis, while critical delay distribution does not change based on strength degradation. Application of the probabilistic approach shows satisfactory results. 9.

Description | Improving seismic performance of structures and seismic design codes requires that laboratory experiments truthfully replicate the seismic structural response. Real-time hybrid simulation provides a viable alternative for shake table testing that allows more economical and efficient seismic performance evaluation in size-limited laboratories. Not well-understood critical parts of the structure are tested physically as experimental substructures in the laboratory, while well-behaved parts are numerically modeled by computer programs as analytical substructures. Servo-hydraulic actuators impose desired responses onto the experimental substructures. Restoring forces from substructures are integrated by a numerical algorithm to enable the replication of the entire structural response through large- or full-scale component tests. However, actuator delay causes a deviation from the exact structural response. This creates a great challenge for reliability assessment of real-time hybrid simulation results since the actual structural response is not available before or after the experiment for an immediate comparison. This paper presents a probabilistic reliability assessment approach for realtime hybrid simulation of structures with degradation. With the generalized Bouc-Wen model to emulate strength and stiffness degradation of structures close to collapse, computational simulation are conducted on single-degree-of-freedom structures subjected to selected ground motions with different intensities. Different natural frequencies are considered as well as slight, moderate and significant degradation. A lognormal distribution for critical delay corresponding to target accuracy is then established to enable probabilistic reliability assessment without actual response known a priori. Examples of applying the proposed probabilistic approach are also presented in this paper. |
