Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Teaching the topic of structural dynamics in any engineering field is a true challenge due to the wide span of the underlying subjects like mathematics, mechanics (both rigid-body and continuum mechanics), numerical analysis, random data analysis and physical understanding. In this article we present a pedagogical example of using experimental modal analysis to verify and calibrate a finite-element model using free, open-source software.
