AbstractThe use of dynamic testing of structures is described in research and engineering applications. These include confirmation of mathematical models, determination of damping, motion studies under wind and earthquakes, and short-term and long-term observation of structural behaviour under dynamic loadings. Instrumentation requirements, selection and placement of transducers and recording the signals on FM, digital and paper recorders are considered. Filtering, signal-to-noise ratio, analysis and interpretation of data are discussed.
