The use of neural networks for structural system identification is receiving an increasing amount of attention through the research focused on structural control and intelligent systems. These systems require continuous monitoring and controlling of structural response; thus, on-line identification techniques are needed to provide real-time information about structural parameters. The Cascade-Correlation (Cascor) neural network is applied here to the structural system identification problem. The Cascor network utilizes a dynamic network architecture and a variable error threshold mechanism which facilitates training and can increase the network’s ability to generalize.
