Structural Dynamics and Modal Analysis Overview

is to expose undergraduate engineering students

to some of the basic concepts and ideas concerning

analytical and experimental modal analysis for solving

structural dynamic problems.

It is NOT intended to be a detailed treatment of this material.

Rather it is intended to prepare the students for some basic

material to enhance their ability to solve some structural dynamics

problems that may be encountered during this summer session.

system which is defined independently from the loads applied

to the system and the response of the system.

Structural dynamics is the study of how structures respond

when subjected to applied loads. Many times, in one form or

another, the modal characteristics of the structure is used to

determine the response of the system.

Overview of Structural Dynamic Modeling Techniques

The raw time response of a structure may seem

complicated but it is really nothing more than the

linear combination of the effects of all the modes

component or system

The model is decomposed to

express the part in terms of its

modal characteristics - its

Structures Vibrate

All structures vibrate to some degree

Objectionable vibrations range from annoying

items such as car vibration considerations to

catastrophic failures such as the famous

Tacoma Narrows Bridge

But there are also many good vibrations some designs incorporate vibrations to achieve the

desired level of performance

Analytical Topics

Types of Models

Models are developed to assist in the design and

understanding of system dynamics

Analytical models (such as finite element models)

are utilized in the design process

Experimental models are also used for many

systems where modeling is not practical or models

are too difficult to develop

SOLUTION

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

Modeling Issues

continuous solutions work well with structures that are well behaved

and have no geometry that is difficult to handle

most structures don't fit this simple requirement

(except for frisbees and cymbals)

real structures have significant geometry variations that are

difficult to address for the applicable theory

a discretized model is needed in order to approximate the actual

geometry

the degree of discretization is dependent on the waveform of the

deformation in the structure

finite element modeling meets this need

Analytical Topics

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

Finite element modeling involves the descretization of the structure

into elements or domains that are defined by nodes which describe

the elements.

A field quantity such as displacement is approximated using polynomial

interpolation over each of the domains.

The best values of the field quantity at nodes results from a

minimization of the total energy.

Since there are many nodes defining many elements, a set of

simultaneous equations results.

Typically, this set of equations is very large and a computer is used to

generate results.

Analytical Topics

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

Nodes represent geometric locations in the structure.

Elements boundary are defined by the nodes.

The type of displacement field that exists over the domain will

determine the type of element used to characterize the

domain.

Element characteristics are determined from

Theory of Elasticity

and

Strength of Materials.

Analytical Topics

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

Structural element formulations use the same general

assumptions about their respective behavior as their respective

structural theories (such as truss, beam, plate, or shell)

Continuum element formulations (such as 2D and 3D solid

elements) comes from theory of elasticity

is formulated (the solution for each element becomes a

A TYPICAL FINITE ELEMENT USER MAY ASK

how many elements should I have?

where can the mesh be coarse; where must it be fine?

what simplifying assumptions can I make?

should all of the physical structural detail be included?

can I use the same static model for dynamic analysis?

how can I determine if my answers are accurate?

how do I know if the software is used properly?

Analytical Topics

12

ALL THESE QUESTIONS CAN BE ANSWERED, IF

the elements available are understood

the software operation is understood

(input procedures, algorithms,etc.)

IF A ROUGH BACK OF THE ENVELOP ANALYSIS

MOST LIKELY THE ANALYST DOES NOT KNOW

Assembly Process

Elemental matrices are then assembled into the global master matrices

using

{x k } = [c k ]{x g }

where

{xk} - element degrees of freedom

{xg} - global degrees of freedom

The global mass and stiffness matrices are assembled and boundary

Analytical Topics

Static Solutions

typically involve decomposition of a large matrix

matrix is usually sparsely populated

majority of terms concentrated about the diagonal

Eigenvalue Solutions

use either direct or iterative methods

direct techniques used for small matrices

iterative techniques used for a few modes from large matrices

Propagation Solutions

most common solution uses derivative methods

stability of the numerical process is of concern

at a given time step, the equations are reduced to an equivalent

static form for solution

typically many times steps are required

COMPLEX MODES

The solution to the state space formulation will result in a

set of modes that are generally complex in form.

The mode shapes will have both real and imaginary parts.

The mode shapes will become much more difficult to

describe especially as the damping becomes significantly

different than the proportional damped form.

MAKE SURE YOU REALLY WANT COMPLEX MODES !!!

DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE THE DAMPING MATRIX ???

The type of reduction utilized can have a significant impact

on the accuracy of the resulting reduced model.

Much work has been done in this area to minimize the

distortion of the reduced model.

The same reduction matrices are also used for expansion of

reduced model information (ie, test data)

Strong differing opinions prevail on this subject !!!

The equation of motion is integrated using numerical step-by-step

procedure for a number of t steps. The term 'direct' means that the

equations of motion are formulated in a physical space at Ndof without

any transformation to another space (ie,modal space).

The equation of motion is to be satisfied not at any time t but rather an

equivalent 'static' equilibrium is sought at discrete time intervals t

apart. Note that from this statement, the static solution techniques will

be employed for the system at many different t time steps. In essence,

'effective' loads are computed from the manipulation of the velocity and

acceleration terms of the equation of motion to reduce the problem to a

simple-to-solve static equivalent problem.

Analytical Topics

42

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

Basically, numerical integration is a process of marching along in time

where response parameters (acceleration, velocity and displacement) at

time t are evaluated from their known historic values. Typically, three

values are needed for three unknowns. Two of these values are derived

from assumptions regarding the manner in which response parameters

vary during a time step. The third equation is the equation of motion

written at a selected point.

An important aspect of numerical integration is the selection of the time

step used in the integration process. If the time step is selected to be

too large then the computed response will suffer from the effects of

'numerical damping' that will distort the results even the scheme is

unconditionally stable.

Analytical Topics

43

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

Explicit Schemes

scheme is explicit when the equation of motion is written at time t

(which is the current time)

computationally efficient when compared to implicit schemes

these techniques are only conditionally stable

typically there is no factorization of [K] or [M] needed for most cases

Implicit Schemes

scheme is implicit when the equation of motion is written at next time

step (which is t + t)

requires more computation when compared to explicit schemes

these techniques are usually unconditionally stable

usually factorization of [K] or [M] is needed for most cases

Many times a transformation is performed to provide a better

or clearer understanding of a phenomena. The time

representation of a sine wave may be difficult to interpret. By

using a Fourier series representation, the original time signal

can be easily transformed and much better understood.

Transformations are also

performed to respresent the same

data with significantly less

information. Notice that the

original time signal was defined by

many discrete time points (ie,

1024, 2048, 4096 ) whereas the

equivalent Fourier representation

only requires 4 amplitudes and 4

frequencies.

Digitization, Quantization, Aliasing, Leakage

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

With analog sampling devices, only the performance of the

analog instrumentation was of concern. With the use of digital

signal processing (DSP) techniques, additional consideration must

be given to the analog to digital conversion (ADC) process.

The analog signal must be digitized and several additional items

become important in order to minimize distortion of the original

signal. These are quantization, sampling, aliasing and leakage.

Sampling rate of the ADC is specified as a maximum that is

possible. Basically, the digitizer is taking a series of

Quantization

Sampling refers to the rate at which the signal is collected.

Quantization refers to the amplitude description of the signal.

A 4 bit ADC has 24 or 16 possible values

A 6 bit ADC has 26 or 64 possible values

A 12 bit ADC has 212 or 4096 possible values

4bit = 0000 = 23 + 2 2 + 21 + 2 0 = 16levels

Each sample is spaced delta t seconds apart. Sufficient

sampling is needed in order to assure that the entire event is

captured. The maximum observable frequency is inversely

proportional to the delta time step used

Sampling Theory

In order to extract valid frequency information, digitization of

the analog signal must occur at a certain rate.

Shannon's Sampling Theorem states

fs > 2 fmax

That is, the sampling rate must be at least twice the desired

frequency to be measured.

For a time record of T seconds, the lowest frequency

component measurable is

f = 1 / T

With these two properties above, the sampling parameters can

be summarized as

fmax = 1 / 2 t

t = 1 / 2 fmax

Aliasing results when the sampling does not occur fast enough.

Sampling must occur faster than twice the highest frequency

to be measured in the data - sampling of 10 to 20 times the

signal is sufficient for most time representations of varying

signals

However, in order to accurately represent a signal in the

frequency domain, sampling need only occur at greater than

twice the frequency of interest

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

Leakage

When the measured signal is not periodic in the sample

interval, incorrect estimates of the amplitude and frequency

occur. This error is referred to as leakage.

Basically, the actual energy distribution is smeared across the

frequency spectrum and energy leaks from a particular f into

adjacent f s.

Leakage is probably the most common and most serious digital

signal processing error. Unlike aliasing, the effects of leakage

can not be eliminated.

Overview window concept

Windows

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

Windows

A window is a weighting function that is applied to the measured

signal. The function of the window is to make the measured

signal appear to look more periodic in the sample interval

thereby reducing the effects of leakage

Some common windows are

* Rectangular

* Hanning

* Flat Top

* Force / Exponential

Windows

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

Windows

In order to better satisfy the periodicity requirement of the

FFT process, time weighting functions, called windows, are used.

Essentially, these weighting functions attempt to heavily weight

the beginning and end of the sample record to zero - the middle

of the sample is heavily weighted towards unity

Windows - Rectangular/Hanning/Flattop

Rectangular - Unity gain applied to entire sample interval; this

window can have up to 36% amplitude error if the signal is not

periodic in the sample interval; good for signals that inherently

satisfy the periodicity requirement of the FFT process

Hanning - Cosine bell shaped weighting which heavily weights the

beginning and end of the sample interval to zero; this window

can have up to 16% amplitude error; the main frequency will

show some adjacent side band frequencies but then quickly

attenuates; good for general purpose signal applications

Flat Top - Multi-sine weighting function; this window has

excellent amplitude characteristics (0.1% error) but very poor

frequency resolution; very good for calibration purposes with

discrete sine

resolution is needed, but amplitude accuracy is not important; the hanning window will have amplitude errors

of as much as 16%.

Impact Excitation

An impulsive excitation which is very short in the time window

usually lasting less than 5% of the sample interval.

ADVANTAGES

- easy setup

- fast measurement time

- minimum of equipment

- low cost

DISADVANTAGES

- poor rms to peak levels

- poor for nonlinear structures

- force/response windows needed

- pretrigger delay needed

- double impacts may occur

- high potential for signal overload and underload of ADC

Excitation Considerations

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

The force spectrum can be customized to some extent

through the use of hammer tips with various hardnesses.

A hard tip has a very short pulse and will excite a wide

frequency range. A soft tip has a long pulse and will excite

a narrow frequency range.

However, the hammer tip alone does not totally determine

the frequency range excited. The local flexibility of the

structure must also be considered.

Signal Types

Excitation techniques can be broken down into two categories:

Deterministic Signals

Non-Deterministic (Random) Signals

Deterministic Signals

conform to a particular mathematical relationship

can be described exactly at any instant in time

response of the system can also be exactly defined if the

system character is known

swept sine, sine chirp, digital stepped sine are examples

Non-Deterministic (Random) Signals

do not conform to a particular mathematical relationship

can not be described exactly at any instant in time

described by some statistical character of the signal

generally have varying amplitude, phase and frequency

content at any point in time

pure random, periodic random, burst random are examples

29

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

Sine waves are generated at discrete frequencies which correspond

to the digital values of the FFT analyzer for the frequency

resolution available. The system is excited with a single sine wave

and the steady state response is measured. Once one spectral line is

obtained, the next digital frequency is acquired until all frequencies

have been measured.

ADVANTAGES

excellent peak to RMS level

excellent signal to noise ratio

good for nonlinear characterization

leakage free measurements obtained

Local Curvefitting

- Each measurement is curvefit to estimate

the frequency, damping and residue for

each FRF

- The frequency and damping is allowed to vary for each measurement

and may not be the same for every measurement

ADVANTAGES

- Good for systems where the poles are not global

DISADVANTAGES

- Frequency and damping is different for the system

- Local modes/node points are not characterized well

13

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

Global Curvefitting

- A set of measurements are curvefit to

estimate the frequency and damping

- The residue is estimated in a second pass

ADVANTAGES

- Good for systems where the poles are global

- Better estimate of the frequency and damping

- Local modes are better characterized

DISADVANTAGES

- Frequency and damping must be global in FRFs

14

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

Polyreference Curvefitting

- A set of measurements are curvefit to

IMAC20 Los Angeles, California February 2002

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

The first 10 years of IMAC were seen to be the birth

and development of Structural Dynamic Modification.

The Eigenvalue Modification and LEMP. This was followed

by the development of more realistic structural elements.

Issues pertaining to RDOF and truncation were addressed.

The next 10 years leaned towards the utilization of the

SDM Technique and development of System Modeling

tools. There was also a trend towards using frequency

based modification and system modeling techniques.

Even today, the two most important issues still pose

problems for the modal and frequency based techniques.

Generally, the lower order modes are sufficient to describe

a structural dynamic problem

However, the SDM process

may require modes that are

not included in the frequency

all the uncoupled modal DOF. Truncation effects are quite

different for the modified and unmodified models

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

Many experimental modal test databases do not contain the

rigid body modes of the free-free system.

In any modifications that tie an unconstrained component to

ground or to another substructure, the rigid body modes

must be available as part of the modal data base.

If they are not available, then some other approximation

of them must be included or the modification process will

be missing a key ingredient.

IMAC20 Los Angeles, California February 2002

37

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

A proportional based approximation is generally acceptable

if the original modal database is proportional and the

modifications to be studied do not significantly disrupt the

proportionality of the system.

However, if the starting modal database is complex or the

changes to be investigated will disrupt the proportionality

of the system, then a complex mode formulation is

recommended.

The Coordinate Orthogonality Check is simply the

comparison of what should have been obtained

analytically for each dof in an orthogonality check

to what was actually obtained for each dof in a

pseudo-orthogonality check from test

MAC Contribution

The MAC Contribution is a relatively simple and

straightforward technique to determine the degree

of contribution of each dof to the MAC value

achieved

pick a mode pair of interest

select a target MAC value

delete dof until target MAC value achieved

Force Unbalance

The Force Balance is a simple calculation to

determine the inequality that exists in the

equation of motion

?

[[K ] [M ]]{x}={0}

uses experimental frequencies and mode shapes

compute the inequality that exists

Model Updating techniques can be broken down

into two categories:

Direct Techniques

Indirect Techniques (Sensitivity based)

Response Based Techniques

Some basic theory of analytical model

improvement and localization of model change are

described

Direct Techniques

Usually a one step process that does not require iteration

to obtain a solution

Usually based on equation of motion and orthogonality

conditions

Exact results obtained (in the sense that the target modes

are reproduced

Generally updated matrices are difficult to interpret and

smearing of results occurs

of the system assembly

Reduction and expansion have a dramatic effect on results

35

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

Skyline containment

Matrix smearing

36

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

Differences that are typically minimized:

Frequency differences

Mode shape differences

Frequency response differences

mass/stiffness of groups of elements

parameters associated with individual elements

parameters associated with groups of elements

37

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

Indirect Techniques - Sensitivity approach

Modal Based Techniques

Frequency differences

Shape differences

Response differences

38

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

Indirect Techniques -Sensitivity -Modal Approach

Frequency differences

Likely to be the most accurate parameter

measured

No spatial information needed

Relatively simple calculations

No reduction/expansion problems

39

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

Indirect Techniques -Sensitivity -Modal Approach

Shape differences

Spatial information included

Mode pairing necessary

Calculations more complicated

Reduction/expansion is a problem

40

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

Indirect Techniques - Sensitivity approach

Response Based Techniques

Contains complete information in frequency range

No need to estimate modal parameters

FRFs are more accurate than modal parameters

Response may be item of interest

Damping may be difficult to determine

Selection of certain spectral lines may cause

numerical difficulties

Using only a few FRFs may distort the results

Difficult to identify parameters for change

Measured FRFs must be acquired with high accuracy

General Comments

42

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

General Comments

Use of all the correlation tools necessary to

interpret the data available

Both modal and response based techniques should be

used together for the updating

One technique alone may not be sufficient to

adequately update the model

analytically and experimentally and the correlation

process repeated to assure that meaningful

parameters have been obtained from the updating

process

43

Modal Analysis & Controls Laboratory

General Comments

obtain reliable results

A firm understanding of the modeling techniques

employed are necessary in order to adequately adjust

the finite element model

A thorough understanding of the experimental data

used for the updating process is critical

A clear definition of what is meant by an improved

model is necessary

The analyst has a tremendous responsibility in

identifying which areas of the model are to be

updated and which sets of modes are the best modes

to use in the updating process
