In instance 6. three, we used a really uncomplicated ‘hand’ way to exhibit the derivation of the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of an easy 2-DOF method; fixing the attribute equation for its roots, and substituting those again into the equations to acquire the eigenvectors. during this bankruptcy, we glance at equipment that may be used with better structures. 7. 1 The eigenvalue challenge in commonplace shape In bankruptcy 6, it was once proven that the undamped, homogeneous equations of a multiDOF method could be written as: 2 38 nine 2 38 nine m11 m12 . . . > k11 k12 . . . > < z"1 > = < z"1 > = 7 6 7 2 6 m21 " m . . . okay . . . okay z 22 22 ð7:1Þ À! four five 2 þ four 21 five z"2 ¼ zero .. .. .. > .. .. .. > : .. > ; : .. > ; . . . . . . . . or concisely, À 2 Á À! ½MŠ þ ½KŠ fz"g ¼ zero ð7:2Þ the place ½MŠ is the ðn  nÞ, symmetric, mass matrix, ½KŠ the ðn  nÞ, symmetric, stiffness matrix, ! anyone of the n normal frequencies and fz"g the corresponding ðn  1Þ eigenvector. 159 160 Structural dynamics and vibration in perform placing  ¼ ! 2 , Eq. (7. 2) should be written as: ðÀ½MŠ þ ½KŠÞfz"g ¼ zero ð7:3Þ the place  is anybody of the n eigenvalues. so one can make the most of ordinary mathematical equipment for extracting eigenvalues and eigenvectors, Eq. (7. three) needs to often be switched over to the ‘standard shape’ of the matter. this is often the only mathematical courting, often called the algebraic eigenvalue challenge: ½AŠfz"g ¼ fz"g ð7:4Þ the place the sq. dynamic matrix, ½AŠ, is, as but, undefined. Equation (7. four) is frequently written as: ð½AŠ À ½IŠÞfz"g ¼ zero ð7:5Þ the place the unit matrix ½IŠ is brought, on the grounds that a column vector can't be subtracted from a sq. matrix. In Eqs (7. four) and (7. 5), even if  is proven as a unmarried scalar quantity, it may take n varied values, the place n is the variety of levels of freedom. equally, n corresponding eigenvectors,fz"g, are available. There at the moment are ways that Eq. (7. three) should be expressed within the usual type of Eq. (7. 5): (1) the 1st process is to pre-multiply Eq. (7. 2) via by means of ½MŠÀ1 , giving: À ! 2 ½MŠÀ1 ½MŠfz"g þ ½MŠÀ1 ½KŠfz"g ¼ zero ð7:6Þ considering that ½MŠÀ1 ½MŠ ¼ ½IŠ, the unit matrix, this can be now noticeable to be within the general type of Eq. (7. 5): ð½AŠ À ½IŠÞfz"g ¼ zero ð7:7Þ the place ½AŠ ¼ ½MŠÀ1 ½KŠ; and  ¼ ! 2 : (2) the second one technique is to pre-multiply Eq. (7. 2) via by way of ½KŠÀ1 , giving: À ! 2 ½KŠÀ1 ½MŠfz"g þ ½KŠÀ1 ½KŠfz"g ¼ zero ð7:8Þ for the reason that ½KŠÀ1 ½KŠ ¼ ½IŠ, this can be additionally visible to be within the ordinary kind of Eq. (7. 5):   ð7:9Þ ½AŠ À ½IŠ fz"g ¼ zero the place ½AŠ ¼ ½KŠÀ1 ½MŠ; and  ¼ 1 ! 2 The matrices ½AŠ and ½AŠ aren't an analogous, yet either could be often called the dynamic matrix. often, those matrices are usually not symmetric, although either ½MŠ and ½KŠ are. The eigenvectors,fz"g, given through the 2 tools are exact, however it could be obvious that the eigenvalues produced by means of the 2 equipment should not a similar. within the first case,  ¼ ! 2 , and within the moment case,  ¼ ! 12 . bankruptcy 7. Eigenvalues and eigenvectors 161 either one of the above methods of defining the dynamic matrix, are in universal use. it's going to be famous that the 1st process makes use of the stiffness matrix, ½KŠ, and the second one procedure makes use of the flexibleness matrix, ½KŠÀ1 .
