Full Field Response Prediction Technique in Dynamic Design
Structure vibration test plays an important role in dynamic design, but in most cases the experimental data we get is always limited and insufficient for succeeding upgrade and optimization. The response prediction technique presented in this paper is the corresponding technique to deduce the full field response from the limited data obtained by simple vibration test instead of conducting the full-size test. SEREP (System Equivalent Reduction-Expansion Process) method was used to conduct the prediction research and the procedure was elaborated in detail theoretically first, then several simulations were carried on to demonstrate the prediction procedure, inspect the accuracy under various loads and investigate the factors which may influence the accuracy including the number of modes used in the prediction, the noise, and the measured points. Results show that this method has excellent accuracy and good adaptability to various loads as long as a sufficient set of orthogonal mode shapes participate in the prediction procedure.
