Model calibration of a wooden building block / Kalibrering av materialparametrar för byggnadselement i trä

Karim, Ali Abdul Jabbar, Lessner, Johan, Moridnejad, Mehrdad January 2013 (has links)
Constructing multi floor buildings by light weight material have increased recently. There are many advantages of using light weight material, such as wood, for the environment. However, one of the deficiencies of lightweight material is the acoustic performance. Transmission of sound and vibration through floors in multi floor buildings in wood is a drawback to be considered. There are many studies that have addressed this issue. It is most common to make a finite element models well as experiments in laboratory. In these studies the material properties in the FE model are probably often adjusted to correlate to the laboratory experiments, since there is a large spread in material properties found in literature. This thesis however tries to elaborate on the actual material properties of the included wooden elements. Dynamic testing is done to determine the spread (here spread means gap between material properties) in material properties of wooden elements. The materials tested are chipboards and two types of wooden beams. The examined beams are both normal wooden beams and laminated veneer lumber beams. When the dynamic behaviour is known for the wooden parts, they are assembled to two small floor systems. The floor systems consist of four beams and one wooden board. The assembly is dynamically tested in laboratory and in FE software. The FE model used the known material properties for each individual building part. The results from the FE model correlate well with the laboratory tests. This shows that when material properties are known a FE model can predict the real behaviour. However, the examined material properties show a large spread from beam to beam, etc and a better knowledge about the material properties of used wooden parts is needed. / Att bygga flervåningshus med lätta byggmaterial har blivit allt vanligare. Det finns många fördelar med att använda lätta material, såsom trä. En av fördelarna är att det är skonsamt för miljön. Emellertid är en av bristerna i lättviktsmaterial den akustiska prestandan. Överföring av ljud och vibrationer genom golv i flervåningshus i trä är en nackdel att överväga. Det finns flera studier som har behandlat denna fråga. Ofta görs finita element modeller samt tester i laboratorium. I dessa studier justerar man materialegenskaperna i FE-modellen för att korrelera mot laboratorieexperiment. Detta eftersom det finns en stor spridning i materialegenskaperna för trä i litteraturen. Med detta examensarbete, undersöks de faktiska materialegenskaperna hos träelementen genom försök. Dynamiska tester utförs för att bestämma spridningen i materialegenskaper. De testade materialen är spånskivor och två typer av träbalkar. De undersökta balkarna är både normala träreglar och laminerade faner balkar. När det dynamiska beteendet är känt för trädelarna, monteras de ihop till två små golvsystem. Golvsystemen består av fyra balkar och en träskiva. Den assemblerade modellen testas både dynamiskt i ett praktiskt försök och i ett FE program. I FEmodellen används de tidigare framtagna faktiska materialegenskaper för varje ingående enskild byggnadsdel. Resultaten från FE-modellen korrelerar väl med de praktiska experimenten. Med detta examensarbete visas att när materialegenskaperna är kända kan FE-modellen förutsäga det verkliga beteendet. De undersökta materialegenskaperna visar dock en stor spridning från balk till balk, etc. och mer kunskap om materialegenskaper hos trädelar behövs.

Human Tibial Bone Strength Prediction By Vibration Analysis For Diagnosing Progressing Osteoporosis

Bediz, Bekir 01 July 2009 (has links) (PDF)
Osteoporosis is a metabolic bone disease that needs to be properly diagnosed. The current diagnosing procedure of osteoporosis is based on the mineral density of bones measured by common methods such as dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). However, due to the deficiencies and limitations of these common methods, investigations on the utilization of other non-invasive diagnosing methods have been executed. For instance, using vibration measurements seems to be a promising technique in diagnosing metabolic bone diseases such as osteoporosis and also in monitoring fracture healing. Throughout this study, bone structural modal parameters obtained from vibrations experiments with decreasing mineral density are examined and therefore, it is aimed to find a new approach to detect osteoporosis or progressing osteoporosis by investigating a relation between structural dynamic properties and mineral density of bone. The main advantage of this study is that loss factor, which is an inherit property of bone, is investigated since in the previous studies mainly the changes in natural frequency of bones with the state of osteoporosis is examined. In this thesis, both in vitro and in vivo experiments are carried out on human tibia specimens. The measured frequency response functions (FRFs) are analyzed using modal identification techniques to extract the modal parameters of the human tibia. The results obtained from in vitro experiments show that loss factor may be a powerful tool in diagnosing osteoporosis, however due to the difficulties encountered in the case of in vivo experiments makes the use of this parameter as a diagnosing tool difficult. It is also seen from in vivo experiments that there is a weak correlation between the natural frequencies of tibia and BMD measurements of patients. Therefore, in order to investigate the parameters affecting the natural frequencies of tibia, finite element (FE) model of human tibial bone is constructed. Using this FE model tibia, the effect of boundary conditions of experiments and geometry of the bone on natural frequencies of bone is examined. These analyses show that the effect of both boundary conditions and geometry of tibia is very high. Therefore, it is concluded that if the necessary conditions are satisfied, the using natural frequency information of tibia seems to be a possible and practical method that can be used to detect progressing osteoporosis. Also, using the FE model of tibia, the changes of natural frequencies of tibia with the variation in elastic modulus are investigated.

Model Updating Of A Helicopter Structure Using A Newly Developed Correlation Improvement Technique

Altunel, Fatih 01 December 2009 (has links) (PDF)
Numerical model usage has substantially increased in many industries. It is the aerospace industry that numerical models play possibly the most important role for development of optimum design. However, numerical models need experimental verification. This experimental verification is used not only for validation, but also updating numerical model parameters. Verified and updated models are used to analyze a vast amount of cases that structure is anticipated to face in real life. In this thesis, structural finite element model updating of a utility helicopter fuselage was performed as a case study. Initially, experimental modal analyses were performed using modal shakers. Modal analysis of test results was carried out using LMS Test.lab software. At the same time, finite element analysis of the helicopter fuselage was performed by MSC.Patran &amp / Nastran software. v Initial updating was processed first for the whole helicopter fuselage then, tail of the helicopter was tried to be updated. Furthermore, a new method was proposed for the optimum node removal location for getting better Modal Assurance Criterion (MAC) matrix. This routine was tried on the helicopter case study and it showed better performance than the Coordinate Modal Assurance Criterion (coMAC) that is often used in such analyses.

Methodology and vibrational analysis for measurements on a VTOL RAPS

Krantz, Dino January 2017 (has links)
In this thesis a methodology for measuring vibrations has been produced andinvestigated for APID 60, a rotorcraft in a Vertical Take-off and landing remotelypiloted aircraft system (VTOL RPAS). A comparative study was carried out forthe purpose of identifying the methodology with respect to design modificationscommon to the APID 60. The pilot-study identified experimental modal analysis(EMA) as a feasible part of the methodology for experimentally extracting themodal parameters of a structure. The EMA was performed on the main frameof the APID 60 where an impact hammer test was chosen as the technique forextracting the response data. As a comparison a point mass was added to thestructure to alter the dynamic properties and the test was repeated.The results from the EMA was compared with a modal analysis performednumerically with a calculation software. Comparison of the results from EMAwith the modal analysis performed numerically indicates consistency. This confirmsa good reliability of the methodology produced. However, the structure onwhich the test were preformed is simple in terms of constant structural properties.Further work should therefore investigate whether this methodology of measuringvibrations could be successfully applied to a structure with higher complexity.

Evaluate Operational Modal Analysis and Compare the Result to Visualized Mode Shapes

Song, Baiyi January 2017 (has links)
The prototypes vibration test carried out for obtaining reliable information concerning machine’s dynamic properties in development process. Analysis results should be able to correlate with FE model to determine if some underlying assumptions (material properties & boundary conditions) were correct. EMA used for extracting structure modal parameter under laboratory condition. However, EMA can generally not provide all required information concerning machine dynamic property. To simulate vibration in operating, it commonly requires the model based on dynamic properties of the machine under operating. Thus, vibration tests need carried out under operational condition. OMA is a useful tool for extracting information concerning dynamic properties of operating machine. This report concerns vibration test of part of mining machine under operating condition. Modal parameters extracted by two kinds of OMA methods. Results from OMA was compared with corresponding EMA results, illustrates reader the advantages of OMA.
