This study aims to correlate the vibration data with quantitative indicators of structural health by comparing and validating the feasibility of identifying unknown excitation forces using output vibration responses. First, numerical analysis was performed to investigate the accuracy, convergence, and robustness of the load identification results for different noise levels, sensors numbers, and initial estimates of structural parameters. Then, the laboratory beam structure experiments were

The results show that using the two identification methods Tikhonov (L-curve) and TSVD (GCV-curve) can successfully and accurately identify the different excitation forces of the external hammer. The TSVD based on GCV method has more advantages than the Tikhonov based on L-curve method. The proposed two kinds of load identification procedure based on vibration response can be applied to the safety performance evaluation of the railway track structure in future inverse problems research.
