This paper forms the second in a short sequence considering the system identification problem for hysteretic systems. The basic model for parameter estimation is assumed to be the Bouc–Wen model as this has proved particularly versatile in the past. Previous work on the Bouc–Wen system has shown that the system response is more sensitive to some parameters than others and that the errors in the associated parameter estimates vary as a consequence. The first objective of the current paper is to demonstrate the use of a principled Bayesian approach to parameter sensitivity analysis for the Bouc–Wen system. The approach is based on Gaussian process emulation and is encoded in the software package GEM-SA. The paper considers a five-parameter Bouc–Wen model, and the sensitivity analysis is based on data generated by computer simulation of a single-degree-of-freedom system. The second major objective of the paper is also concerned with uncertainty analysis and considers the problem of obtaining estimates of parameter confidence intervals from optimisation-based system identification schemes. Two different estimators of the parameter covariance matrix are demonstrated and the results are compared with those from an independent MCMC (Markov Chain Monte Carlo) identification method.
This paper represents the second in a sequence of three discussing various aspects of the system identification problem for hysteretic systems i.e. systems with memory. As discussed in the first paper , an extremely versatile parametric form for the modelling of hysteretic systems is provided by the Bouc–Wen model  and . (As stated in , the literature on the Bouc–Wen model is extensive and the reader is referred to the recent book  for a comprehensive guide to the literature.) One of the main problems associated with adopting the Bouc–Wen form for a system model is the identification of the model parameters; the problem is complicated considerably by nonlinearity and the presence of unmeasured states . In the first paper in this sequence, it was shown that it is possible to frame the identification problem in terms of an optimisation problem which is amenable to solution by the use of evolutionary algorithms. There are a number of problems associated with the identification problem. One difficulty is associated with the fact that the response of the given hysteretic system will generally be more sensitive to some parameters than others, and these parameters will as a result, be estimated with lower accuracy. In a sense, this does not raise a problem. If the model is being developed solely as an effective representation of the system which will only be used to make predictions in similar operating conditions to those in which the identification data were obtained, then the insensitivity to the parameters means that any errors will have little effect. However, if the purpose of the model is truly to infer the underlying physics in some sense, then the parameter values matter. More importantly, if a model is used to extrapolate, i.e. to make predictions under conditions removed from those in which identification data were acquired, then the system may become sensitive to a different parameter set. If can also become important to estimate how uncertainty in the parameters propagates through to uncertainty in the response. Because of these issues, the problem of system identification becomes entwined with problems of uncertainty analysis (UA). In its broadest terms, UA is concerned with quantifying output uncertainty given certain input uncertainties; this in turn requires some qualitative means of assigning a degree of uncertainty to a given situation. The most popular and longest-standing uncertainty theory is probability theory and this will provide the means for uncertainty analysis in this paper. A sub-problem of considerable interest within UA is sensitivity analysis (SA). This determines how individual input parameters are responsible for uncertainties in the output. Saltelli  divides SA approaches into three categories; in increasing order of power one has: 1. The lowest-level analysis is screening, which simply ranks the inputs in order of their importance in affecting the output. This can help a model builder identify the set of most important inputs, as well as any inputs that contribute very little to the output (and can thus be eliminated from subsequent uncertainty analyses). The main drawback of screening is that it offers no quantification of effects beyond ranking. 2. The next level, local SA, analyses and quantifies the effects of varying input parameters, but only around their immediate locality. This does not account for nonlinear responses however, so is of limited use in complex models. The idea of local sensitivity analysis will be familiar to structural dynamicists in the context of finite-element model-updating ; in that case it is possible to compute analytically the derivative of an output with respect to specified inputs. The local nature of the process is obvious from the use of calculus. 3. The most informative analysis is global SA, which investigates and quantifies uncertainties over the complete range of input space. Of course, this comes with the drawback of increased computational expense. In order to truly sample the complete range of possible parameters, one always has recourse to Monte Carlo analysis , but this can be the most expensive option of all. If a single sample is acquired on the basis of a computationally expensive run of a large model, the accumulation of many samples for Monte Carlo analysis may not be feasible, certainly not if the dimension of the input set is high. As discussed above, SA can be desirable for a number of reasons, most often to identify the most influential inputs whose uncertainty must be reduced in order to decrease output variance; however also for design optimisation, and model simplification—i.e. identifying parameters that have little or no effect on the output and can thus be discounted. A new approach which addresses the problem of the computational expense of global SA is the use of Bayesian statistics. By creating an emulator (or surrogate model or metamodel) of the model under investigation, through fitting a Gaussian process to the response surface, sensitivity analysis data can be inferred at a greatly reduced computational cost with little loss of accuracy. Computational savings can be up to one or two orders of magnitude . The Bayesian approach is used in this paper to carry out a sensitivity analysis for the Bouc–Wen system. In fact, the outputs of that model are not expensive to acquire; however, there are other advantages to the Bayesian approach which make it an interesting one to consider. Briefly stated, the second major objective of the paper is also concerned with UA. As discussed a little earlier, an optimisation approach based on Differential Evolution and its self-adaptive variants has proved very effective in overcoming the problems associated with Bouc–Wen systems (nonlinearity in the parameters and the presence of unmeasured states) ; however, unlike system identification based on linear (and nonlinear) least-squares, this approach does not yield an estimate of the covariance matrix for the parameter estimates and therefore does not directly give error bounds. In the latter part of the current paper it is shown that meaningful error bounds for the Bouc–Wen parameter estimates can be computed based on existing estimation theory and that the results are consistent with another identification method. The layout of the paper is as follows: Section 2 briefly describes the Bouc–Wen model of hysteresis considered here and explains the evolutionary approach to system identification. Section 3 discusses the theoretical basis of the Bayesian sensitivity analysis, including the background for the Gaussian process models which are used for the emulator. Section 4 presents the results of the sensitivity analysis for the Bouc–Wen system. Section 5 presents two estimators for parameter covariance matrices and shows how parameter confidence intervals can be estimated in optimisation-based identification schemes. The paper concludes with a little discussion in Section 6.

The conclusions of the paper are rather straightforward. The Bayesian sensitivity analysis has been shown to shed light on the system identification problem for Bouc–Wen hysteretic systems. Perhaps a little surprisingly, the analysis seems to indicate that the identification problem is rather insensitive to the nonlinear Bouc–Wen parameters and this provides support for the observation made elsewhere that these parameters appear to be the most difficult to estimate with accuracy. One of the main objectives of this paper has been to demonstrate the use of the Bayesian sensitivity analysis in a structural dynamic context as the authors believe that it provides a principled framework for the analysis of uncertainty in many important dynamical systems problems. With this in mind, the Bouc–Wen system has been chosen as an illustration because of its relative simplicity; however, it is intended to apply the method to recently developed extensions of the Bouc–Wen model which include many more parameters. The second major objective of the paper was to demonstrate how parameter confidence intervals can be extracted from optimisation-based identification schemes. Two estimators for the parameter covariance matrix were demonstrated. The first estimator was more analytically justifiable but suffered from the fact that numerically estimated second derivatives were needed; the second made use of an linearised approximation, but had the advantage that only first derivatives are needed. In any case, both estimators gave completely consistent results, yielding confidence intervals which bracketed the true parameters. As a further test on the estimators, the predicted standard deviations for the parameters were compared with estimated values generated from a MCMC identification scheme and were shown to give good agreement. The final paper in this short sequence will be concerned with an experimental case study where the methods developed in the first two papers can be illustrated on a problem of practical significance.
