Damping Estimation Using Free Decays and Ambient Vibration Tests
Publication: Research - peer-review › Article in proceeding
The accurate identification of modal damping ratios of Civil Engineering structures is a subject of major importance, as the amplitude of structural vibrations in resonance is inversely proportional to these coefficients. Their experimental identification can be performed either from ambient vibration or from free vibration tests. In the last case, the structural response after application of an impulse or after the application of harmonic loads can be used. Ambient vibration tests have the strong advantage of being more practical and economical. However, recent applications of both approaches in Civil Engineering structures have shown some discrepancies [1, 2]. Thus, it is important to evaluate the accuracy of the available testing alternatives.
