A methodology is presented for identification of a nuclear power plant piping system, which employs mathematical description in the form of transfer function matrix, frequency domain technique for estimation of system dynamic parameters, statistical technique for verification of model configuration and evaluation of parameter estimates, adaptive approach for current model updating. Model applications for estimation and monitoring of forcing functions, displacements, and stresses due to transient processes and steady state vibrations in the piping system are proposed. Methodology is illustrated by numerical examples.
