Suppose that {e} represents the strain of the position to be measured, n represents the quantity of the strain sensor nodes, k represents the modal number, [[psi].sub.j] represents the strain modal vector at the jth order, [PSI] [member of] [R.sup.nxj] represents the strain modal vector matrix, [q.sub.j] represents the strain modal coordinate at the jth order, and {q} [member of] [R.sup.kxj] Then, the strain of the bridge can be expressed as follows:
where [[kappa].sub.n] is related to the angular frequency [[omega].sub.n] and the modal number [[lambda].sub.n] by the dispersion relationship
Knowing [R.sub.n] and [T.sub.n], modal number [[lambda].sub.n] was found from the graphical solution of (13) using the mathematical packages MATHEMATICA [19].
However, this does not necessary mean that the elastic modulus determined from these frequencies should be smaller than in ideal clamped-free case as the modal number, being in the denominator equation (17) in fourth power, decreases as well.
where [[lambda].sub.[infinity]] = 1.8751 is the first modal number for the clamped-free flexural vibrations of the beam.
Results: The modal number of total food intakes was 2 or 3 per day on both weekdays and weekends.
Using individual works, the modal number of years until the peak number of citations is eight years, although this value ranged from 4 to 14 years.
Yanev (1978) described parallel clines in the modal number of trunk vertebrae for three lineages in the central coastal ranges of California.
- Modal number of trunk vertebrae was determined for 38 populations of Batrachoseps by x-raying, clearing and staining, or counting costal grooves.
Modal number of vertebrae in Batrachoseps populations ranged from 17 (B.
A minimum of 11 (female) and nine (male) increases in modal number of trunk vertebrae were inferred to have occurred, including increases in the ancestor of all Batrachoseps, the ancestor of the attenuate clade, B.
Generally speaking, some low modal energy is chosen on the basis that modal energy reduces sharply along with the increasing of modal numbers; the other part is considered as the volume of an ellipsoid.
