Thus, in such a formulation, we solve an unsteady heat conductivity problem in which internal heat sources are simulated by a dissipative function calculated in the steady-state vibration problem.
It performs both static displacement and vibration measurements but cannot be used for fast transients because time averaging is required on steady-state vibration modes.
Realizing that an engine at idle is very close to sinusoidal steady-state vibration, and since we are only concerned with the magnitude of the transfer function, we are left with the final equation with which the entire system can be modeled: This equation relates the output sinusoid to the input sinusoid and will be optimized as the magnitude of this equation approaches zero.
