What Did We Learn? 1 By making the assumption, {x(t)}={A}e st , we observed that the free response was actually a sum of the modes of vibration: If we write this differently, we reveal the most important thing about this course:
Coordinate Transformation 2 The solution for the free response is actually a coordinate transformation in disguise: If this is the form of the solution, why not use it to begin with? Generalized coordinates (Physical DOFs) Principal coordinates (Modal DOFs) Modal transformation matrix (Modal vectors)

Modal Solution Method 3 Consider the case again with no damping: The equations of motion have been converted to modal equations of motion. Are these equations easier to solve?
Orthogonality of the Modes 4 The equations are easier to solve provided the modal vectors are orthogonal with respect to the system matrices: This final equation indicates that two different modes r and s are orthogonal with respect to the mass (and stiffness) matrix.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
