Direct identification of modal parameters using the continuous wavelet transform, case of forced vibration
Safia Bedaoui, Hamid Afra and Pierre Argoul

 
Abstract
    In this paper, a direct identification of modal parameters using the continuous wavelet transform is proposed. The purpose of this method is to transform the differential equations of motion into a system of algebraic linear equations whose unknown coefficients are modal parameters. The efficiency of the present method is confirmed by numerical data, without and with noise contamination, simulated from a discrete forced system with four degrees-of-freedom (4DOF) proportionally damped.
 
Key Words
