Modal Analysis of Plane Frames

Gera, Ravi and Paul, Nipika (2011) Modal Analysis of Plane Frames. BTech thesis.



In the modal analysis of plane frames the main aim is to determine the natural mode shapes and frequencies of an object or structure during free vibration. The dynamic analysis of frames requires inclusion of axial effect in the stiffness and mass matrices. It also requires a co-ordinate transformation of the nodal or local co-ordinates to global co-ordinates. The analysis is performed using Modal Analysis.
The physical interpretation of the eigenvalues and eigenvectors which come from solving the system are that they represent the frequencies and corresponding mode shapes.
The objective of this project is to study the vibration, frequency and mode shape of plane frames. Formulation of stiffness matrix and mass matrix are to be done using direct stiffness method. Programs are to be developed using ANSYS and MATLAB codes. A modal analysis of a plane frame will also be studied.
