Substructuring using Impulse Response Functions for Impact Analysis

  title={Substructuring using Impulse Response Functions for Impact Analysis},
  author={Daniel J. Rixen},
In the present paper we outline the basic theory of assembling substructures for which the dynamics is described as impulse response functions. The assembly procedure computes the time response of a system by evaluating per substructure the convolution product between the impulse response functions and the applied forces, including the interface forces that are computed to satisfy the interface compatibility. We call this approach the Impulse Based Substructuring method since it transposes to… CONTINUE READING
