Comparison FDD, RDT and SSI

FDD

- Advantages: Dealing with cross spectral matrix, good for
- natural frequencies and mode shapes estimation
- Disadvantage: based on strict assumptions, leakage
- due to Fourier transform, damping ratios, effects of inputs
- and harmonics; closed frequencies

Current trends in modal identification:

Refined techniques of identification methods

Comparisons between identification methods

RDT

- Advantages: Dealing with data correlation, removing noise
- and initial, good for damping estimation, SDOF systems
- Disadvantage: MDOF systems, short data record, natural
- frequencies and mode shapes combined with other methods

SSI

- Advantages: Dealing with data directly, no leakage and less
- random errors, direct estimation of frequencies, damping
- Disadvantage: Stabilization diagram, many parameters

Technique (RDT)

Frequency Domain Decomposition

- Relation between inputs excitation X(t) and output response
- Y(t) can be expressed via the complex FRF function matrix:

FDD for output-only identification based on strict points

(1) Input uncorrelated white noises

Input PSD matrix is diagonal and constant

(2) Effective matrix decomposition of output PSD matrix

Fast decay after 1st eigenvector or singular vectors for

approximation of output PSD matrix

(3) Light damping and full-separated frequencies

- Also FRF matrix written as normal pole/residue fraction
- form, we can obtain the output complex PSD matrix:

Frequency Domain Decomposition

- Output spectral matrix estimated from output data

SSI

- SSI is parametric modal identification in the time domain.
- Some main characteristics are follows:
- Dealing directly with raw response time series
- Data order and deterministic input signal, noise are
- reduced by orthogonal projection and synthesis from
- decomposition

- SSI has firstly introduced by Van Overschee and
- De Moor (1996). Then, developed by several authors
- as Hermans and Van de Auweraer(1999); Peeters (2000);
- Reynder and Roeck (2008); and other.

- SSI has some major benefits as follows:
- Unbiased estimation – no leakage
- Leakage due to Fourier transform; leakage results
- in unpredictable overestimation of damping
- No problem with deterministic inputs(harmonics, impulse)
- Less random errors:
- Noise removing by orthogonal projection
