Appendix III

Modal Analysis of Dynamic Systems [77,78]

A typical multiple DOF dynamic system (total number of DOFs is n), excited by external forces, can be described by spatial property matrices as

image (AIII.1)

where [M], [C], and [K] are n×n symmetric mass, viscous damping, and stiffness matrices respectively. image, image, {x(t)}, and {f (t)} are n×1 vectors of time-varying acceleration, velocity, displacement responses, and external excitation forces respectively. ...
