Iterated Dynamic Condensation Technique and Its Applications in Modal Testing

Revised01 May 1995
Accepted25 Sep 1996


This article addresses an application of the dynamic condensation in modal testing, which requires measurements of natural frequencies and a limited number of components of modal shapes only. The measured frequencies can be employed as the initial estimates in the iterated dynamic condensation to effectively find an exact solution for the original eigenvalue problem and determine the transformation matrix between the testing and nontesting coordinates. Complete modal shapes including the nontesting coordinates can then be estimated based on the limited measurements. Numerical results are presented to illustrate the feasibility and efficiency of the iterated dynamic condensation. A comparison with the experimental results of a multiple disk system is also provided.
