Title: Synthesize Modes and Correlate

Abstract

SMAC is an automated experimental modal parameter extraction package which determines the natural frequencies of vibration, viscous damping ratios and mode shapes from experimental accelerance frequency response functions (FRFs). It is written in the MATLAB interpretive matrix language and has a graphical user interface.

  • The Model M-2 maintenance system is the first completely digitally controlled servomanipulator. The M-2 system allows dexterous operations to be performed remotely using bilateral force-reflecting master/slave techniques, and its integrated operator interface takes advantage of touch-screen-driven menus to allow selection of all possible operating modes. The control system hardware for this system has been described previously. This paper describes the architecture of the overall control system. The system's various modes of operation are identified, the software implementation of each is described, system diagnostic routines are described, and highlights of the computer-augmented operator interface are discussed. 3 references, 5 figures.
  • This guide explains data preparation and execution with BModes, a finite-element code that provides dynamically coupled modes for a beam. The beam can be a rotating or non-rotating rotor blade or a tower, and it can have arbitrary distribution of structural properties and geometry along its length. A coupled mode implies presence of coupled flexural, axial, and torsion motions in a natural mode of vibration. Knowledge of flap-lag-torsion-axial coupled modes is crucial to several applications. Examples are: accurate modeling of major flexible components for modal-based aeroelastic codes such as FAST (Fatigue, Aerodynamics, Structures, and Turbulence), validation of flexible component modelsmore » using experimental data, modal-based fatigue analysis, and interpretation of aeroelastic-stability behavior of turbines. Our plan is to eventually integrate BModes with FAST to provide tower and blade modes as rotor speed and blade pitch control settings change during a simulation. This guide provides step-by-step instructions on how to prepare input files (specify blade geometry, section properties, and finite-element discretization), how to execute the code, and how to interpret the outputs.« less
  • We perform a series of simulations of evolving star clusters using the Astrophysical Multipurpose Software Environment (AMUSE), a new community-based multi-physics simulation package, and compare our results to existing work. These simulations model a star cluster beginning with a King model distribution and a selection of power-law initial mass functions and contain a tidal cutoff. They are evolved using collisional stellar dynamics and include mass loss due to stellar evolution. After studying and understanding that the differences between AMUSE results and results from previous studies are understood, we explored the variation in cluster lifetimes due to the random realization noisemore » introduced by transforming a King model to specific initial conditions. This random realization noise can affect the lifetime of a simulated star cluster by up to 30%. Two modes of star cluster dissolution were identified: a mass evolution curve that contains a runaway cluster dissolution with a sudden loss of mass, and a dissolution mode that does not contain this feature. We refer to these dissolution modes as 'dynamical' and 'relaxation' dominated, respectively. For Salpeter-like initial mass functions, we determined the boundary between these two modes in terms of the dynamical and relaxation timescales.« less
