Download Einführung in Theorie und Praxis der Zeitreihen- und by Hans Günther Natke PDF

By Hans Günther Natke

Zum Thema: Das vorliegende Buch behandelt die experimentelle examine ( Identifikation) schwin gungsfahiger linearer zeitinvarianter diskreter elastomechanischer ( determinierter) Systeme. Die Beschrankung auf diskrete Systeme ist nicht sehr einschneidend, wenn guy bedenkt, dass jede numerische Rechnung (einschliesslich digitaler Auswertungen von Messungen) automatisch eine Diskretisierung beinhaltet und guy sich das Rayleigh-Ritz-Verfahren vergegenwartigt. Die das procedure beschreibenden Bewegungskoordinaten sind zeitabhangig: Zeitfunk tionen, Signale, Schriebe. Das zu bestimmten Zeiten abgetastete sign bildet als geord nete Menge eine Folge, die sog. (diskrete) Zeitreihe. guy spricht auch verallgemeinernd von einer kontinuierlichen Zeitreihe als Synonym fur die Zeitfunktion. Die Zeitreihen examine hat die Aufgabe, die statistischen (zeitabhangig: stochastischen) Eigenschaften der Zeitreihen durch geeignete Manipulationen an ihnen zu ermitteln und zwar im Zeit- und Frequenzraum unter Beachtung der in praxi vorliegenden fehlerbehafteten (gestorten) Schriebe endlicher Lange. Die modalen Grossen sind die Eigenschwingungsgrossen des structures, die zur Unter suchung des dynamischen Verhaltens desselben von fundamentaler Bedeutung sind. Diese Bezeichnung bietet sich abkurzend an, z. B. Modalmatrix statt Matrix der Eigenvektoren des platforms. Der Begriff Modalanalyse umfasst die Ermittlung und Interpretation der Modalgrossen. Zum Inhalt: Dem Titel entsprechend ist eine Einfuhrung geboten, die von bestimmten Grundlagen ausgehend das theoretische Rustzeug entwickelt, Zusammenhange aufzeigt, die Ergebnisse physikalisch interpretiert und Anwendungen diskutiert. Daruber hinaus sind Ausfuhrun gen zur praktischen Handhabung und schliesslich praktikable Verfahren ang
