This paper deals with a problem of nondestructive testing for a composite system formed by the connection of a steel beam and a reinforced concrete beam. The small vibrations of the composite beam are described by a differential system where a coupling takes place between longitudinal and bending motions. The motion is governed in space by two second order and two fourth order differential operators, which are coupled in the lower order terms by the shearing, $k$, and axial, $\mu$, stiffness coefficients of the connection. The coefficients $k$ and $\mu$ define the mechanical model of the connection between the steel beam and the concrete beam and contain direct information on the integrity of the system. In this paper we study the inverse problem of determining $k$ and $\mu$ by mixed data. The inverse problem is transformed to a variational problem for a cost function which includes boundary measurements of Neumann data and also some interior measurements. By computing the Gateaux derivatives of the functional, an algorithm based on the projected gradient method is proposed for identifying the unknown coefficients. The results of some numerical simulations on real steel-concrete beams are presented and discussed.

Abstract

This paper deals with a problem of nondestructive testing for a composite system formed by the connection of a steel beam and a reinforced concrete beam. The small vibrations of the composite beam are described by a differential system where a coupling takes place between longitudinal and bending motions. The motion is governed in space by two second order and two fourth order differential operators, which are coupled in the lower order terms by the shearing, $k$, and axial, $\mu$, stiffness coefficients of the connection. The coefficients $k$ and $\mu$ define the mechanical model of the connection between the steel beam and the concrete beam and contain direct information on the integrity of the system. In this paper we study the inverse problem of determining $k$ and $\mu$ by mixed data. The inverse problem is transformed to a variational problem for a cost function which includes boundary measurements of Neumann data and also some interior measurements. By computing the Gateaux derivatives of the functional, an algorithm based on the projected gradient method is proposed for identifying the unknown coefficients. The results of some numerical simulations on real steel-concrete beams are presented and discussed.
