Introduction

Introduction
When a system requires more than one co-ordinate to describe
its motion, it is called multi d.o.f system.
The n-dof system differs from that of the single-DOF system in
that it has N natural frequencies, and for each natural
frequencies, there corresponds a natural state of vibration known
as the normal mode
It has n natural frequencies associated with natural state of
vibration with a displacement configuration known as normal
mode
mathematical terms associated with these quantities are known
as eigen values and eigen vectors
They are established from the N simultaneous equations of
motion of the system and possesss certain dynamic properties
associated with the system.

Introduction

Introduction
Normal mode vibrations are free undamped vibrations that
depend only on the mass and stiffness of the system and how
they are distributed.
When vibrating at one these normal modes all points in the
system undergo simple harmonic motion that passes through
their equilibrium positions simultaneously.
As in the single dof system, forced harmonic vibration of the
N-dof system takes place at the frequency of the excitation.
Damping is generally omitted except when its concern is of
importance in limiting the amplitude of vibration

Introduction
2-DOF System
It is the simplest of the N-dof system
All of the fundamental concepts of multi-dof system can be
described in terms of the 2-dof system without becoming
burdened with the algebraic difficulties.
Numerical results are easily obtained for 2-dof system and they
provide a simple introduction to the behavior of multi-dof
system.
Damping is generally omitted except when its concern is of

Orthogonality of eigen-vectors
Let i be the i th eigenvector, the normal mode equation for the
ith mode is
K i = i Mi
premultiplying the ith equation by the transpose Tj , of mode j,
we obtain
Tj K i = i Tj Mi
If we start with the equation for the jth mode and premultiplying
by Ti , we obtain a similar equation with i and j interchanged
Ti K j = j Ti Mj

Orthogonality of eigenvectors
Thus, subtraction of the two equation, we obtain
(i j )Ti Mj = 0
If i 6= j the foregoing equation requires that
Ti Mj = 0
i 6= j
T
Then j K j = 0,
i 6= j, so normal modes are othogonal to
each other.
Finally, if i = j, (i j ) = 0. Then
Ti Mi = Mii and Ti K i = Kii where Mii and Kii are known as
generalized mass and stiffness , respectively.

Free Vibration Response

Normal Mode Analysis


Free Vibration Response
When the normal mode frequencies and mode shapes are known,
it is possible to determine the free vibration of the system for any
initial conditions by the proper summation of the normal modes.
For free vibration to take place in one of the normal modes for
any initial conditions, the equation of motion for mode i must be
of
 the
(i)form
x1
= ci i sin(i t + i )
i = 1, 2
x2
The constants ci and i are necessary to satisfy the initial
conditions, and i ensures that the amplitude ratio for the free
vibration is proportional to that of mode i

For systems of large number of degrees of freedom, the computation can be costly. It is
possible to cut down the size of the computation by a procedure known as Mode
Summation Method.
The displacement of the structure under forced excitation is approximated by the sum of
a limited number of normal modes of the system multiplied by generalized coordinates.
For a 50-story building with 50 d.o.f., has 50 eigen values and 50 eigen vectors
representing the normal mode frequencies and normal modes of the undamped system.

Normal Mode Summation

If we know that the excitation of the building centers around the


lower frequencies, the higher modes will be excited.
Assuming the forced response to be the superposition of only a
few of the lower-frequency modes. Perhaps the modes 1 (x),
2 (x) and 3 (x) may be sufficient. Then the deflection and
forced excitation can be
xi = 1 (xi )q1 (t) + 2 (xi )q2 (t) + 3 (xi )q3 (t)

The use of the limited modal matrix then reduces the system to that equal to the
number of modes used.
For the 50-story building, we have
P T KP = (3 50)(50 50)(50 3) = (3 3)matrix
Thus instead of solving the 50 coupled equations, we need only to solve the three by
three equations represented by
P T MP q

If the damping matrix is assumed to be proportional, then

Rayleigh Damping
If damping is proportional, the system mode shapes are those of
the undamped system.
If we displace the system initially in one of the undamped mode
shapes, the masses continue to oscillate in that shape, but the
motion eventually disappears in time because of damping.
When the damping is not proportional, the masses do not
continue to oscillate in that mode shape.
Damping in structural elements is mostly hysteretic and hard to
quantify. Lacking a better model proportional damping is
often assumed.
With proportional damping assumption, higher modes are
damped more than the lower modes.

Normal Mode Summation

Rayleigh Damping
The natural frequencies of stiff structural elements are usually
greatly separated.
The effect of higher modes in total response is less than the
modes with lower natural frequencies. For these reasons,
damping ratios are often specified only for lower modes.
Modes with higher damping ratios die out more quickly when
the system is subjected to any short-term or shock excitation.
If the system is subjected to a harmonic excitation, the modes
with higher frequencies have lesser effect because their
amplitudes are inversely proportional to the square of their
frequencies.

Damping - General issues


Damping forces are difficult to quantify.
Often the source of damping is unclear (coulomb friction,
viscous damping or hysteretic damping) and form of the
damping relation is uncertain (linear, quadratic or other).
Even though source and form are known obtaining precise values
for the parameters in damping model is difficult.
Damping is often slight in structural vibration, but can be
significant in systems where damping is deliberately introduced
(suspension, vibration isolation and passive damping).
Because of these considerations damping complicates the
mathematics.
Vibration engineers often either totally neglect damping in the
analysis or assume it is linear and proportional.
