N2 - This study explores the possibility of using stiffness-based method and cubic spline interpolation to locate the damaged storey of a building during a strong earthquake, and corresponding stiffness matrix of structure often change in the earthquake process. The time series model of a building is established from the full structural dynamic responses. Next, the coefficient matrix of the time series model could be solved by recursive least squares (RLS) algorithms. Then, the model parameters of a building are calculated by the coefficient matrix of time series model. Finally, the identified natural frequencies and mode shapes of structure that corrected by cubic spline interpolation would be used to construct the stiffness matrix of a building. Then, the damage location of a building could be detected by the identified stiffness matrix of a building. The effectiveness of the proposed procedure is verified using numerically simulated earthquake responses of the finite element model of a six-storey frame.
