Interactive Design Using Eigenvalue Modification, A Comparison of Experimental and Theoretical Modal Analysis 820191

This paper examines the feasibility of using eigenvalue modification as the effective algorithm for interactive modal analysis. The dynamic characteristics of a cantilever beam are determined experimentally and compared to the results of an analytical study. The model is then modified with the addition of mass and stiffness. The results predicted using eigenvalue modification theory on the analytical model compare very favorably with experimentally determined results.
