    This is a short condensed seminar covering the important aspects of test-analysis-correlation-updating for structural dynamic modeling applications with some extended material in related areas.  The course first provides a motivation for doing this work.  Then specific topics of model reduction and model expansion are discussed followed by some important aspects of experimental modal analysis and further discussions on some of the inherent problems associated with doing this from a very practical standpoint.  The actual correlation tools and model improvement issues are described and discussed.  Additional material discusses some system modeling approaches along with several application projects to help clarify some of the issues that typically need to be addressed.

    Note that this seminar is a live recorded ZOOM presentation during COVID era when physically meeting was not possible.

    Course Description.pdfCourse Description.pdf

    This seminar focuses on the practical implementation of experimental modal analysis testing. This is accomplished through understanding basic application of theory and measurement techniques as well as data reduction to obtain modal characteristics. Concepts of theoretical background, digital signal processing, excitation techniques and extraction of modal parameters from measured frequency response functions is the goal of this seminar.
