Deformation Prediction Using Linear Polynomial Functions
By Deformation, we mean change of shape of any structure from its original shape and by monitoring over time using Geodetic means, the change in shape, size and the overall structural dynamics behaviors of structure can be detected. Prediction is therefor based on the epochs measurement obtained during monitoring, the life, failure and when the structure is at unsafe condition may be forecast. The main purpose of structural deformation monitoring scheme and analysis is to detect any significant movements of the structure.The knowledge of behaviour of Tank Structure under uniaxial/biaxial tensile loads is necessary to predict the changes in the geometry of the structure. The aim of this study is to predict the Deformation experience by the structure under continuous loading with data obtained in four epochs of measurement using linear polynomial technique. The predictions are compared with measured data reported in literature and the results are discussed. The computational aspects of implementation of the model are also discussed briefly.
