0.1 MDOF Modal Analysis
Example:
Consider a simple 2DOF mass- spring system Fig. 3

## EOM: 2DOF hence 2 Equations of motion from Previous example

In Matrix form:
" #" # " #" # " #
m1 0 ẍ1 k1 + k2 −k2 x1 f1
+ = (1)
0 m2 ẍ2 −k2 k2 + k3 X2 f2
| {z } | {z } | {z } | {z } | {z }
M Ẍ K X F

In a familiar form
M Ẍ + KX = F (2)

## • If either M or K have off-diagonal terms, we say that the system is coupled

• In this case, the system is stiffness (spring) coupled. There are off-diagonal terms
in K

## Now Consider a simple 2DOF mass- spring system Fig. 2

EOM: 2DOF hence 2 Equations of motion from Previous example
In Matrix form:
" #" # " #" # " #
m1 + m2 −m2 l ẍ k 0 x f (t)
+ = (3)
−m2 l m2 l2 θ̈ 0 m2 gl θ 0
| {z } | {z } | {z } | {z } | {z }
M Ẍ K X F

## Figure 2: 2DOF Mass-Spring system

• For this other example, the mass/inertia matrix (M ) has off-diagonal terms, so the
system is inertially (mass) coupled

## 0.1.1 Decoupling the system

Using our first example, Let us decouple the system
Consider a simple 2DOF mass- spring system Fig. 3

In Matrix form:
" #" # " #" # " #
m1 0 ẍ1 k1 + k2 −k2 x1 f1
+ = (4)
0 m2 ẍ2 −k2 k2 + k3 X2 f2
| {z } | {z } | {z } | {z } | {z }
M Ẍ K X F

## Let m1 = m2 = 1kg and k1 = k2 = k3 = 1N/m

Assume The forcing function is harmonic:

## f1 = f¯1 cos ωt and f2 = f¯2 cos ωt

Then after substitutions
" #" # " #" # " #
1 0 ẍ1 2 −1 x1 f¯1
+ = cos ωt (5)
0 1 ẍ2 −1 2 X2 f¯2
The eigenvalues are ω12 = 1 and ω22 = 3 and
" # " #

The eigenvectors are X̄1 = and X̄2 =

Let us define

## The EOM in standard form:

M Ẍ + KX = F̄ cos ωt

Let X = UH
Plug this in the EOM

M U Ḧ + KU H = F̄ cos ωt (6)

Pre-multiply (6) by U T

T T T

| {zM U} Ḧ + U
| {zKU} H = U
| {zF̄} cos ωt (7)

## Solving this using our example parameters we obtain

" #" # " #" #  
1 0 r̈1 1 0 r1 1 ¯ ¯
√ (f1 + f2 )

Note:

## • On matrix Ḱ, the eigenvalues ωi2 are on the diagonal

• ri variable is referred to as modal coordinate with the physical meaning - The response
of a single mode

## • Any response can be written as a linear combination of eigenvetors- concept referred

as Modal contribution

## For example , if " # " #

x1 0
=
x2 4
Then " # " # " #
x1 0 1
= 2 + 2

## 0.1.2 Eigenvector Orthogonality

For spatial vectors (position, velocity, etc),

## • Orthogonal means perpendicular

• Mathematically- It means the dot product is zero i.e. No component of one vector is
in the direction of the other (AT B = 0)
5
• Eigenvectors are orthogonal, but not in this way.

– They are orthogonal with respect to the mass and stiffness matrices
– i.e. UiT M Uj = 0 and UiT KUj = 0 for all i 6= j

0.1.3 Normalization

## • Look at the transformation without the scaling

h ih i Ui M U i 0
UT MU = M Ui Uj =
UjT 0 UjT M Uj

## The zeros in one of the diagonals is because of orthogonality

• So, we want UiT M Ui = 1 but In general, this is not true. (Here UiT M Ui = 2)

## 0.1.4 Orthonormal Eigenvectors

• Eigenvectors are orthogonal

• If they have been normalized, then they are also normal, making the eigenvectors
orthonormal.
