Experimental substructuring
Book chapter, 2020

In this chapter, we outline techniques to use measured dynamic characteristics of components to build an assembled model. Although the basic theory is pretty straightforward, the difficulty in experimental substructuring lies in the limitations in what can be measured and the special techniques needed to alleviate errors in the measured signals.—(Chapter Authors: Daniel Rixen, Maarten van der Seijs, Randall Mayes, Matt Allen & Thomas Abrahamsson).
