This paper discusses the identification problem of the time-varying properties of a hysteretic system, associated with a given motion equation. The motion equation describes the behavior of a shear-beam building with N degree of freedom. The restoring force is portraying by a Bouc-Wen model. The relationship between input and output data is represented by using the cnoidal method.
