Combining experimental and analytical substructures at multiple points is complicated by the traditional requirement to measure every translation and rotation at the connection points on the experimental substructure. Typically a separate fixture is required at every connection point to estimate the translations and rotations as well as apply forces and moments. This work presents a method whereby a single, flexible fixture can be utilized for this purpose. The connection responses are… CONTINUE READING
