Abstract:The aim of this study is to predict the dynamic behaviour of single lap-jointed cantilevered beams theoretically and to validate the predictions via experimental tests. The ABAQUS finite element analysis (FEA) software was used to predict the natural frequencies, mode shapes and frequency response functions (FRFs) of lap-jointed beams. The LMS (Leuven Measurement System) CADA-X dynamic test software and the LMS-DIFA Scadas II 48 channel data acquisition hardware were used in experimental measurement of the dyn… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
