Upcoming Feature - Modal Uncertainty Diagram
The upcoming release 4.1 will include a series of new features, and among these is a new Modal Uncertainty Diagram. This diagram presents the estimation results of the natural frequencies versus the damping ratios for a user selected list of modes.
The estimation results consist of the mean values of the estimates as well as the confidence bounds. In the figure below, the results of an Operational Modal Analysis of the Heritage Court Tower in Canada using the Unweighted Principal Components Stochastic Subspace Identification method are shown. Eight modes have been estimated and they are all presented in the diagram:
This diagram gives a quick graphical overview over the estimation accuracy of the individual modes of the analysis. The larger confidence bounds a modal parameter has for a certain significance level, the more uncertain the estimation of the "true modal parameter" is. The first five modes show a reasonable uncorrelated nature between the natural frequency and the damping ratio. This is indicated by the "standing" confidence bound ellipses. In the case of the last three modes, there is correlation between the estimates of the natural frequency and the damping ratios. This is indicated by the "tilting" confidence bounds ellipses. They are all tilting to the left which indicates that a higher frequency estimate at the same time most probable will result in a lower damping estimate.
The presented diagram fits the axes to the displayed modes, but this setting can be changed so that frequency axis is 0 to the Nyquist Frequency and damping is 0 to 100%.
The Modal Uncertainty Diagram is available for automatic estimated modes obtained with any of the Stochastic Subspace Identification methods available in ARTeMIS Modal Pro. It can be accessed both in the Estimation Task and the Validate task.
