Title: Damping estimation using free decays and ambient vibration tests
Issue Date: 2007
Abstract: This paper aims the study of the accuracy provided by the identification of modal damping ratios based on ambient and free vibration tests. For that purpose, numerical simulations were developed to generate artificial experimental data concerning both types of tests. This simulated data allowed the illustration of the influence of factors like non-proportional damping or the proximity of natural frequencies on the quality of the estimates. The accuracy of two output-only identification algorithms (Enhanced Frequency Domain Decomposition and Covariance driven Stochastic Subspace Identification methods) and of two alternative procedures to process the free decays was also analyzed.
