Multi-Task Sparse Bayesian Learning For Model Updating In Structural Health Monitoring

YONG HUANG, JAMES L. BECK, HUI LI

Abstract


In this paper, we focus on a multi-task sparse Bayesian learning (SBL) theory that simultaneously utilizes multiple measurement vectors that are marked by a similar sparseness profile. Joint learning for sparse representations of multiple tasks has been mostly overlooked, although it is a useful tool for exploiting data redundancy by modeling the statistical relationships within groups of measurements. We first present a hierarchical Bayesian model and Bayesian inference framework for the multi-task SBL algorithm. Then we investigate the application of the multi-task SBL for model updating in structural health monitoring. The results verify that exploiting common information among multiple related tasks leads to better performance of the Bayesian inversion
