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 (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.
