AbstractInertial transducers that measure horizontal movement are affected by rotation of the measurement location. In this paper the effect of rotation is expressed quantitatively as a fraction of the translational signal amplitude and is shown to depend inversely on the effective radius of rotation of the measurement location and the square of the frequency component of the signal. Correction procedures are presented for various cases that arise in the determination of modal amplitudes and mode shapes for tower structures, suspension bridges and frame building structures.
