AbstractLateral or translational motion of structures is often accompanied by rotations of cross sections due to flexural deformations. These rotations are particularly pronounced on tall towers or chimneys. When full-scale dynamic properties of such structures are measured, transducers deployed for determining lateral motion are thus subjected to rotation as well as translation. It is the purpose of this report to determine the effect of such rotations on the signals obtained from full-scale measurements of lateral motions of chimneys and tower structures.
