Structural dynamics is a subset of structural analysis which covers the behaviour of

structures subjected to dynamic loading. Dynamic loads include people, wind, waves,

traffic, earthquakes, and blasts. Any structure can be subject to dynamic loading.

Dynamic analysis can be used to find dynamic displacements, time history, and modal

analysis.

A static load is one which does not vary. A dynamic load is one which changes with time.

If it changes slowly, the structure's response may be determined with static analysis, but if

it varies quickly (relative to the structure's ability to respond), the response must be

determined with a dynamic analysis.

Dynamic analysis for simple structures can be carried out manually, but for complex

structures finite element analysis can be used to calculate the mode shapes and

frequencies. An open-source, lightweight, free software DYSSOLVE can be used to solve

basic structural dynamics problems.Contents [hide]

Displacements

A dynamic load can have a significantly larger effect than a static load of the same

magnitude due to the structure's inability to respond quickly to the loading (by

deflecting). The increase in the effect of a dynamic load is given by the dynamic

amplification factor (DAF):

where u is the deflection of the structure due to the applied load.

Graphs of dynamic amplification factors vs non-dimensional rise time (tr/T) exist for

standard loading functions (for an explanation of rise time, see time history analysis

below). Hence the DAF for a given loading can be read from the graph, the static

deflection can be easily calculated for simple structures and the dynamic deflection

found.

[edit]

Time history analysis

A full time history will give the response of a structure over time during and after the

application of a load. To find the full time history of a structure's response you must solve

the structure's equation of motion.

[edit]

Example

A simple single degree of freedom system (a mass, M, on a spring of stiffness, k for

example) has the following equation of motion:

where is the acceleration (the double derivative of the displacement) and x is the

displacement.

If the loading F(t) is a Heaviside step function (the sudden application of a constant load),

the solution to the equation of motion is:

where and the fundamental natural frequency, .

The static deflection of a single degree of freedom system is:

so you can write, by combining the above formulae:

x = xstatic[1 cos(t)]

This gives the (theoretical) time history of the structure due to a load F(t), where the false

assumption is made that there is no damping.

Although this is too simplistic to apply to a real structure, the Heaviside Step Function is

a reasonable model for the application of many real loads, such as the sudden addition of

a piece of furniture, or the removal of a prop to a newly cast concrete floor. However, in

reality loads are never applied instantaneously - they build up over a period of time (this

may be very short indeed). This time is called the rise time.

As the number of degrees of freedom of a structure increases it very quickly becomes too

difficult to calculate the time history manually - real structures are analysed using nonlinear finite element analysis software.

[edit]

Damping

Any real structure will dissipate energy (mainly through friction). This can be modelled

by modifying the DAF:

DAF = 1 + e c

Bolted steel ~6%

Reinforced concrete ~ 5%

Welded steel ~ 2%

Generally damping would be ignored for non-transient events (such as wind loading or

crowd loading), but would be important for transient events (for example, an impulse

load such as a bomb blast).

[edit]

Modal analysis

A modal analysis calculates the frequency modes or natural frequencies of a given

system, but not necessarily its full time history response to a given input. The natural

frequency of a system is dependent only on the stiffness of the structure and the mass

which participates with the structure (including self-weight). It is not dependent on the

load function.

It is useful to know the modal frequencies of a structure as it allows you to ensure that the

frequency of any applied periodic loading will not coincide with a modal frequency and

hence cause resonance, which leads to large oscillations.

The method is:

Find the natural modes (the shape adopted by a structure) and natural frequencies

Calculate the response of each mode

Optionally superpose the response of each mode to find the full modal response to a

given loading

[edit]

Energy method

It is possible to calculate the frequency of different mode shapes of system manually by

the energy method. For a given mode shape of a multiple degree of freedom system you

can find an "equivalent" mass, stiffness and applied force for a single degree of freedom

system. For simple structures the basic mode shapes can be found by inspection, but it is

not a conservative method. Rayleigh's principle states:

"The frequency of an arbitrary mode of vibration, calculated by the energy method, is

always greater than - or equal to - the fundamental frequency n."

For an assumed mode shape , of a structural system with mass, M; stiffness, EI (Young's

modulus, E, multiplied by the second moment of area, I); and applied force, F(x):

then, as above:

[edit]

Modal response

The complete modal response to a given load F(x,t) is . The summation can be carried out

by one of three common methods:

Superpose complete time histories of each mode (time consuming, but exact)

Superpose the maximum amplitudes of each mode (quick but conservative)

Superpose the square root of the sum of squares (good estimate for well-separated

frequencies, but unsafe for closely spaced frequencies)

To superpose the individual modal responses manually, having calculated them by the

energy method:

Assuming that the rise time tr is known (T = 2/), it is possible to read the DAF from a

standard graph. The static displacement can be calculated with . The dynamic

displacement for the chosen mode and applied force can then be found from:

umax = ustaticDAF

[edit]

Modal participation factor

For real systems there is often mass participating in the forcing function (such as the

mass of ground in an earthquake) and mass participating in inertia effects (the mass of the

structure itself, Meq). The modal participation factor is a comparison of these two

masses. For a single degree of freedom system = 1.
