Abstract

This study considers FRF (frequency response function) based substructuring and decoupling of substructures for the dynamic analysis of complicated huge structures utilizing compatibility conditions between adjacent substructures. This work includes: 1) the derivation of updated FRF matrix for dynamic system subjected to frequency or time dependent constraints in the frequency-domain, 2) the synthesis and decoupling of subsystems based on the dual domain approach using compatibility conditions between adjacent subsystems, 3) the evaluation of the validity of the proposed methods through numerical applications. It is expected that the proposed methods will be utilized as the basic formulation in investigating the dynamic characteristics of partitioned or synthesized system.
