Application of a New Experimental Identification Method to Engine Rigid Body Mount System 891139
In this paper, a new method which directly identifies characteristic matrices (the mass, damping and stiffness matrices) of the mechanical structure using measured forces input and responses data is proposed. This algorithm is based upon the Maximum Likelihood Estimation, so that the accuracy of identified matrices is stable to experimental errors (random errors).
After a theoretical formulation is performed, two examples are provided to illustrate and validate this algorithm. One is analytical example which identifies analytically generated data with random noises, and the other experimentarly identified engine/mount system of automobiles.
