On the Dynamic Response Prediction at the Full-Scale Test of Aircraft Component

Vitālijs Pavelko, Aleksandr Nevskij


Several general effects of boundary conditions and their adequate description at structural dynamic computational simulation constitute the main subject of the discussion. First, an analytical model of elastically supported beam was considered to evaluate the effects of support compliance to the basic dynamic characteristics. Second, a more complex model of a body with elastic support was simulated. Some general properties of structure dynamics were analysed.
