Abstract

There is given the theoretical background of the modal analysis in this paper. In the first part modal analysis, its theoretical and experimental procedure of vibration analysis is defined. In document one degree of freedom system and its behavior, equations and next modification as system of free vibration, harmonic excitation, structural damping is defined. Also, there is defined important property of the modal model - orthogonal property. In the next step is discussed multi degrees of freedom system, its properties, damping and solution.

Keywords:
modal analysis vibration damping orthogonal properties excitation
