Formatted abstract

The aim of the thesis is to examine the various mode shape expansion methods are examined identifying the importance and usefulness of these methods. It also determines how accurate the expansion methods are compared to the actual values that are calculated analytically.

A study of the concepts of modal analysis and a review of the mode shape expansion algorithms is carried out and from these methods 2 are selected. The results of the selected methods are then discussed and compared.

The 4 modal expansion methods that will be discussed are:

•        Guyan static expansion method

•        Kidder dynamic method

•        Procrustes method

•        LSQI method (Least Squares minimization techniques with Quadratic Inequalities)

The 2 modal expansion methods that are selected for comparison are:

• Guyan static expansion method

• Kidder dynamic method

MATLAB codes have been written for the 2 methods mentioned above. The results are then compared graphically with the analytical data and discussed.
