2. The Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) • Methods used for vibration problems: by Michael Fischer JASS 2006 in St. Petersburg

3. The Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) • Methods used for vibration problems: -Usually we are dealing with models like FEM, (BEM) and analytical models which enable us to calculate for deterministic loads and defined model parameters deterministic responses. -Typically the calculated value is given in detail with respect to frequency, time and location. -However, the level of discretization of time/frequency and the geometric data has to be defined at the basis of theoretical considerations regarding wave-lengths, eigenmodes etc. -The following introductory example shows, that at higher frequencies the reliability of the result of calculation might be considerably reduced. by Michael Fischer JASS 2006 in St. Petersburg

4. The Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) 2. Introductory example: • room (25 m3) • limited by a steel plate • one of the boundary surfaces is excited by a harmonic load • 18 points in the room are considered by Michael Fischer JASS 2006 in St. Petersburg

5. The Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) 2. Introductory example: • The figure shows for the 18 points • in the room all measured transfer • functions between the harmonic • load and the sound pressure. • lt can clearly be seen, that at • higher frequencies the transfer • functions differ considerably. Level difference sound pressure - harmonic force frequency Hz Hz Wheel of a bike by Michael Fischer JASS 2006 in St. Petersburg

6. The Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) 2. Introductory example: - reason for the high differences: different contributions of single modes which are close together regarding their eigenfrequency. So e.g. in the centre of the room and a tonal excitation at 250 Hz, a difference of about 20 dB (factor 10) between the individual functions is observed. Level difference sound pressure - harmonic force frequency Hz Hz by Michael Fischer JASS 2006 in St. Petersburg

7. The Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) 2. Introductory example: - Even slight temperatur differences in the room, which practically cannot be eliminated, influence the positions of the Eigenfrequencies so that a detailed prediction cannot be given Level difference sound pressure - harmonic force frequency Hz Hz by Michael Fischer JASS 2006 in St. Petersburg

8. The Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) 2. Introductory example: • The air inside the room also shows • modes (starting at about 50 Hz) by Michael Fischer JASS 2006 in St. Petersburg

9. The Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) 2. Introductory example: • Possible Uncertainties of… • boundary conditions (e.g. clamped/free edge) • dynamic material properties (e.g. concrete: E ~ 30kN/mm^2) • masses of the materials (e.g. concrete: 25 kN/m^2) • damping • load distribution (e.g. position of the machine) • frequency of excitation (e.g. velocity of train) • ... by Michael Fischer JASS 2006 in St. Petersburg

10. The Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) 3. Historical example: In the early 1960s: -prediction of the vibrational response to rocket noise of satellite launch vecicles and their payloads -problem: the frequency range of significant response contained the natural frequencies of a multitude of higher order modes: -the Saturn launch vehicle possessed about 500.000 natural frequencies in the range 0 to 2000 Hz by Michael Fischer JASS 2006 in St. Petersburg

11. The Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) 4. Motivation for SEA: • The both examples above are leading to the insight that • at higher frequencies a method with less detailing has to be accepted. • -A detailed analysis at the basis of FEM approach (input at a point of • excitation, output at a point of observation) would lead to results which • are very sensitive to slight changes in the input parameters • (factor 10!). • -In order to obtain acceptable sensitivities of the results, but to describe • nevertheless the system response, we will give the results in an averaged • sense. by Michael Fischer JASS 2006 in St. Petersburg

15. The Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) 6. Energetic approach: 6.1 Shift to energy • In the first step a shift from velocities to energy is carried out. • the mean kinetic energy is proportional to the mean square velocity mode shape (point of observation) contribution of the i.th mode by Michael Fischer JASS 2006 in St. Petersburg

19. The Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) 6. Energetic approach: 6.4 Averaging over the points of excitation („ Step 2“) • By this averaging, the information about the shape of the individual • eigenmodes is eliminated and has no longer to be considered • This means: the modes don‘t have to be calculated! by Michael Fischer JASS 2006 in St. Petersburg

25. The Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) 6. Mean input power -We are looking at one „sub-system“ (frequency band) -We assume a steady state vibration: „the mean input power, which is introduced during one cycle of vibration equals to the dissipated power due to damping“ (compare SDOF system). -mean input power in a frequency band: force frequency band total mass  input power is independent from damping by Michael Fischer JASS 2006 in St. Petersburg
