Experiment 1
Dynamics of a three storied building frame subjected to harmonic
base motion.
The performance of the experiment, as per suggested procedure, on the setup
developed at IISc, resulted in observations and subsequent deductions as provided in
tables 11.1-11.7 and figures11.1-11.6. The calculations related to the analysis of the
mathematical model is briefly summarized below:

Refined methods of experimental and mathematical modeling can be brought to bear

on the structure under study. Thus the three-story shear-building frame was analyzed
mathematically using finite element (FE) analysis and experimentally by using
experimental modal analysis (EMA) procedures. The FE analysis was carried out
using NISA software and the EMA was carried out using MEscope software. The FE
modeling involved descretization of the structure using 3-D beam, 4-node shell and
concentrated mass elements resulting in a system with 1482 degrees of freedom.
Figure 11.4 shows the setup used for measurement of frequency response functions
using impulse hammer test. Tables 11.6 and 11.7 summarize the natural frequencies
of the frame using refined and approximate methods. As may be observed from this
table, these estimates show good mutual agreement. Figures 11.5 and 11.6,
respectively, show the first three mode shapes as predicted by the detailed FE analysis
and EMA.

Experiment 2
Dynamics of a one-storied building frame with planar asymmetry
subjected to harmonic base motions.
The performance of the experiment, as per the suggested procedure, on the setup
developed at IISc, resulted in observations and subsequent analysis as provided in
tables 12.1 -12.9 and figures 12.1 and 12.2. The calculations related to the analysis of
the model is briefly summarized below:

The structure under study was also analyzed using more sophisticated methods,
namely, numerical modeling using finite element method, and, frequency response
measurements using impulse hammer test. Figure 12.3 shows the set up for modal test
using impulse hammer. The frequency response functions so measured are compared

175

with theoretical predictions based on equation (2.2) in figure 12.4. The mode shapes
derived from the detailed finite element model (with 630 dofs) are shown in figure
12.5. Table 12.8 summarizes the results on natural frequencies obtained using
different methods.

Experiment 3
Dynamics of a three storied building frame subjected to periodic
(non-harmonic) base motion.
The performance of the experiment, as per suggested procedure, on the setup
developed at IISc, resulted in observations and subsequent deductions as provided in
figures13.1-13.3. Refer to the notes provided in Experiment 1 for details of the mass,
stiffness and damping matrices. Figure 13.1 shows the base motions for different
RPM of the motor resulting in base motion periods of 0.9870,1.0328, 1.1845 and
1.2490 s respectively. The base motions re-constructed from the derived Fourier
coefficients are also shown in this figure. Figure 13.2 shows the computed floor
displacement from the mathematical model. Here the solution is obtained using two
alternative strategies: the first method involves modal decomposition of the system
and Fourier decomposition of excitation (equation 3.2) and, the second, employs
direct integration technique using the base motion without Fourier decomposition.
The two solutions show the expected mutual agreement. The steady oscillatory
response of the system obtained using experiments and theory are compared in figure
13.3. It may be noted that the phase difference that is observed between the two
results in these figures is because of the arbitrary choice of time axis for the two
results. The instructor may note that significant amount of computer work is needed

Experiment 4
Vibration isolation of a secondary system
The performance of the experiment, as per suggested procedure here in, on the setup
developed at IISc, resulted in observations and subsequent analysis as shown in tables
14.1-14.8 and figures 14.1-14.5. Refined methods of experimental and mathematical
modeling can be brought to bear on the structure under study. Thus the frame was
analyzed mathematically using finite element (FE) analysis and experimentally by
using experimental modal analysis (EMA) procedures. The FE analysis was carried
out using NISA software and the EMA was carried out using MEscopeVES software.
The FE modeling involved discretization of the structure using 3-D beam, 4-node
shell and concentrated mass elements resulting in a system with 1482 degrees of
freedom. Figure 14.2 shows the setup used for measurement of frequency response
functions using impulse hammer test. Table 14.8 summarizes the natural frequencies
of the frame using refined and approximate methods. As may be observed from this
table, these estimates show good mutual agreement Figures 14.3 and 14.4 respectively
show the first three mode shapes as predicted by detailed FE analysis and EMA.
In the development of mathematical model, as described in section 4.3, the structural
matrices were obtained as

Experiment 5
Dynamics of a vibration absorber
The performance of the experiment, as per suggested procedure here in, on the setup
developed at IISc, resulted in observations and subsequent analysis as provided in
tables 15.1-15.9 and figures15.1-15.3. Refined methods of experimental and
mathematical modeling can be brought to bear on the structure under study. Thus the
beam vibration absorber system was analyzed mathematically using finite element
(FE) analysis and experimentally by using experimental modal analysis (EMA)
procedures. The FE analysis was carried out using NISA software and the EMA was
carried out using MEscope software. The FE modeling involved descretization of the
structure using 2-D beam and concentrated mass elements resulting in a system with
40 degrees of freedom. Figure 15.4 shows the setup used for measurement of
frequency response functions using impulse hammer test. Figures 15.5 and 15.6
respectively show the first three mode shapes as predicted by detailed FE analysis and
EMA. Both the FE model and the EMA model predict the presence of an intermediate
mode that gets sandwiched between the two modes predicted by the approximate 2dof model for the beam-absorber system. Figure 15.7 shows the frequency response
functions obtained using refined and approximate methods.

EXPERIMENT 6
Dynamics of a four storied building model with and without an open
ground floor
The frequency response functions for displacement of different floors were obtained
using impulse hammer test. Figure 16.1 shows the experimental setup and figures
16.2 and 16.3 show the comparison between analytical and experimental results.
Tables 16.1-16.8 document the results of experiment as per the suggested procedure.
Figure 16.4 show the plot of absolute floor displacements for the two frames obtained
using theory and experiment. Results on spring forces from theory and experiment are
shown in figure 16.5 for the two frames. Tables 16.9 and 16.10 compare the results on
fundamental natural frequency for the two frames using theory and experiment. From
Table 16.9 it may be observed that the match between theoretical and experiment is
not good. This could be due to the approximate nature of determination of inter-storey
stiffness.
Brief details of analysis of the 4-dof model is given below.

Experiment 7
Dynamics of one-span and two-span beams
Tables 17.1-17.11 show the results of experiment conducted on the setup developed at
IISc. The two beam structures were also studied experimentally using impulse
hammer test and, computationally, using commercial finite element software. The
results of these studies are superposed on the experimental results in figure 17.1. The
results show reasonable mutual agreement. In the FE model developed, and also in the
two-dof analytical model developed, the stiffening effect of due to the placement of
the motor and the dummy mass has not been included. Similarly the support
conditions have been assumed to correspond to perfect simple support situations. This
may not be correctly realized in the experimental setup. These features possibly
explain the difference between the analytical and experimental predictions. Some of
the calculations involved in the development of the two-dof model for the two beams
systems are summarized below.

Experiment 8
Earthquake induced waves in rectangular water tanks
Tables 18.1 and 18.2 summarize the observed natural frequencies along with the
analytical predictions. Results on mode shapes from theory and experiment are
compared in figure 18.1. The comparison between theory and experiment reveals
notable differences in mode shape profiles. This difference appears to be due inability
of the shake table to provide accurate harmonic base motions especially at low
frequencies. Also one should bear in mind that the standing wave profile here is being
measured using a somewhat crude device. Figure 18.2 shows the measured base
motion and its Fourier transform. From this figure it could be observed that although
the signal has a dominant harmonic component, there exist other frequency
components that corrupt the signal. Consequently, in steady state, the shape of the
liquid surface would be made up of contributions from several modes thereby
impeding the accurate measurement of individual mode shapes.

The measured block response and the corresponding numerical simulations are
compared in figures 19.2-19.5. These figures, respectively, show the plots of rotation,
rotational velocity and the phase plane plots. While these experiment and simulation
show broad mutual agreement, the details of variation of velocity show considerable
difference. These differences are also manifest in the phase plane plot. The following
are thought to be the reasons for these discrepancies
1. It was observed that sliding motion was not entirely absent during the shake
table test. This motion is unaccounted for the in the theoretical model. Also,
the block was found to mildly rotate about the vertical axis while in motion.
This again is not accounted for in the theory.
2. The base motion used in the experiment and the simulations were not
identical. Figure 19.5 shows the details of the applied harmonic base motion in
the experiment and in the simulations. This plot also shows the threshold glvevel needed to cause the uplift of the block. Notice that the exciter passes
through a transient build-up phase before the target harmonic motion is
realized. In numerical simulation of the block behavior we assume that
h(t ) = h0 cos t right from t=0. This would mean that the blocks in experiment
and in simulation pass through different transient regimes before reaching the
steady state. Given that the system is highly nonlinear it is to be expected that

EXPERIMENT 10
Seismic wave amplification, liquefaction and soil-structure
interactions
Figure 20.1 shows the comparison of seismic wave amplification in the soil layer
obtained using theory and experiment. Similar results for the two frames are shown in
figures 20.2 and 20.3. It is observed that the soil layer has the first natural frequency
of about 11.81 Hz and the two frames have natural frequencies of about 13.30 Hz and
7.96 Hz. Therefore it may be anticipated that the propensity for dynamic interactions
between soil and structure is higher for structure model I. Figures 20.4 and 20.5
compare the amplification spectra observed in soil-structure models I and II. Also see
figures 10.9a and b to appreciate the importance of coupled and uncoupled soilstructure analyses. It may be observed from figure 20.4 and 20.5 that the comparison
between theory and experiments is poorer at the second natural frequency of the
combined system. This could be explained by noting that the procedure used for
making equivalent discrete model for the soil layer is based on the first mode shape of
the soil layer. Consequently, the model does not correctly capture the soil deformation
in the neighborhood of the second natural frequency of the combined system. Tables
20.1-20.8 depict the experimental observations as per the format suggested.
