Mode Superposition Transient Analysis

Mode Superposition Transient Analysis is a computationally efficient method of solving the time-varying response of a structure as it uses a linear combination of mode shapes instead of solving the coupled equations directly. We will see how the Mode Superposition method, commonly abbreviated as the MSUP method, can be used to find out a system’s response when it is excited by a sudden, non-periodic excitation. The course also addresses crucial criteria that determine the accuracy of a Transient solution, such as mesh density and time step size, to name a few.
