Random Decrement Technique Based on the Sampling Methods
This paper presents the random decrement (RD) technique based on the sampling method for parameter identification of linear dynamic system. The development of RD technique was elaborated briefly in the aspects of identifying the dynamic properties, and then this paper summarized the corresponding parameters recognition problems due to the quantity and quality of measured sampling segments. Detailed analysis of two kinds of sampling method (the probability-proportional-to-size and two-stage sampling) is conducted to investigate its adaptation range in extracting RD signatures. The results of two simulated examples indicates that in view of the different vibration parameter recognition situation, the above provided RD technique based on different sampling methods could improve the quality of RD signature obviously, and lead to a quite accurate frequency and the damping ratio of structural system under the effective use of all measured sampling segments.
