Bond graph based modal decomposition of systems with nonproportional damping
(Affiliation: Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, University of Cyprus, 75 Kallipoleos Street, Nicosia 1678, CyprusCorrespondence Address: Louca, L.S.Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, University of Cyprus, 75 Kallipoleos Street, Nicosia 1678, Cyprusemail: lslouca@ucy.ac.cy, 2012)Modal analysis of lumped parameter and continuous dynamic linear systems is extensively used to study their dynamic behavior and controller design. In both cases, a reduction of the model size that does not degrade accuracy ...
