By using it, structures with thousands of DOFs and dozens of supports, subjected to stationary or non-stationary multiple random seismic excitations, can be computed on ordinary personal computers quite easily. *INTERFACE_SPRINGBACK_LSDYNA is used to create a dynain-file, which is then the basis for pre-stress analysis with *INCLUDE. (2.29) is not mathematically valid in the case of non-uniform flow because the power spectral density (PSD) of the excitation force, SF(ω)(=2G(ω)) depends on the axial location along the tube. Nevertheless, in real systems they could be considerably larger, since the vibration amplitude is linearly proportional to the pressure amplitude of the acoustical mode. The flow region can be divided into several, say k, intervals. Do not use the typical 10 m/sec2Pk = 1.0 gPk that MilStd vibration people consider “typical” since that is an unrealistically high vibration level for a BSR test! Another type of vibration created in the laboratory is SineOnRandom. have multiple sinusoidal frequencies (harmonically related to the impact rate of the periodic bumps at a given speed). If assumption (i) is not satisfied, or if it is not known whether it is, then empirical expression (2.109), or equivalently (2.105), should be used for an approximate estimate. The excitation field is generally not homogeneous (assumption (iv)), however, and the procedures proposed by Ohlmer et al. (2.31). This is mainly because of the huge amount of computational efforts required for complex engineering problems, particularly for multiple excitation problems or non-stationary problems. (2.27) is valid for uniform flow. Sine vibration used to be used for pass/fail testing but in the last 6 or 8 years it has largely been replaced by random vibration and time history control for that task. If these values are not specified then contact the spec writer. Note that it is extremely rare that the test level would have to get as high as 5 m/sec2Pk = 0.5 gPk in order to hear the offending noise(s). A statistical equivalent linearization method for MDOF models is used as a response simulator of the original elastic-plastic hysteretic model. M. Folley, in Numerical Modelling of Wave Energy Converters, 2016. However, apart from two-phase flows, this is but one – though sometimes the main – excitation source, far-field ‘noise’ being the significant other. This is simple for single-span cylinders, but not so clear-cut for multispan ones – see Section 2.8; however, a single-span calculation using the lowest system eigen-frequency and mode shape gives an acceptable estimate. If the offending noise is not heard during the initial low level sweep then slightly increase the vibration level and run another sweep. Random vibration is a very popular test method used for determining if there are any BSR issues in a module or component. Some common examples include an automobile riding on a rough road, wave height on the water, or the load induced on an airplane wing during flight. If you are analyzing test track or road vibration for use in lab BSR tests it is recommended that you refer to this SAE paper. The explained method regards the central frequency of the rectangular PSD function as a principal parameter for finding the critical PSD function. Because the equivalent stiffnesses and damping coefficients depend strongly on properties of excitations, the procedure using transfer functions cannot be used in nature in the problem for elastic-plastic models. A better response would be: “we will come collect some data and figure out what to do about this situation”. MEMS assemblies must be designed so that the natural frequencies are much greater than the forcing frequencies of the system. Random Vibration Analysis. Large acceleration amplitudes were observed, of the order of 20 g at frequencies of the order of 1000 Hz for slender glass or aluminium cylinders (e.g. However, whilst these techniques may have been successful for improving the solution to other nonlinear random vibration problems, they need to be applied for WECs to determine their suitability and this remains an open area of research. Similar calculations and experiments were conducted with multispan and clustered cylinders. As with the pot-hole event, it is possible to calculate a PSD curve of a rumble strips event, but if the resulting PSD curve is used by a random vibration controller it will be a poor representation of the real event. Spectral-domain models of WECs are effectively specific solutions to nonlinear random vibration problems. (2.31) is smaller than 1, the system is stable; when it is larger than 1, the system will be unstable. The randomness is a characteristic of the excitation or input, not the mode shapes or natural frequencies. He/she says they had driven home one of the new vehicles, and when driven over a particular county road on the way home the instrument cluster made a nasty buzz. In most of the problems that have arisen (Section 3.5), however, the damage is related to vibro-impact and other tribological interactions, resulting in impacting or fretting wear (Ko 1993, 1997). Fluidelastic vibration. However, in this case the best bet is to perform time history replication of the recorded vibration (which is not covered in SAE 07NVC-262). The exciter motion is actually just a broadband vibration having a frequency-based shaping and an overall vibration level that is indicative of some real-world vibration (such as a test track or regular road). Axial flow-induced random vibration in nuclear plant components has been reported. Thus, only the magnitude of the excitation force is considered in the response calculation using the following equation: Here, S¯F(ω) is the non-dimensional PSD of the excitation force. However, the frequency changes, depending on axial location, since the flow velocity is not uniform. However, sine tests still have an important role in lab BSR testing since they are quite useful for diagnostic work. Within the pantheon of solutions to nonlinear random vibration problems currently available, a particular promising area for the spectral-domain modelling of WECs is in the use of non-Gaussian closure. The sum along the height of standard deviations of story ductilities can be an adequate candidate for the objective function to define the criticality. January 1994; Shock and Vibration 1(6) ... examples. For non-uniform flow, Connors [101] proposed the following Eq. Eq. In the case of non-uniform flow, we similarly estimate the frequency of the periodic vortex shedding by Eq. The conclusions may be summarized as follows: A probabilistic critical excitation method for stationary random vibrations of SDOF elastic-plastic models can be developed by employing a statistical equivalent linearization method as a response simulator of the original elastic-plastic model.
