Paper Abstract

In this paper, an efficient technique is proposed for identifying the impact forces acting on circular arch, which overcome the deficiency of ill-conditioned frequency response function (FRF) in the frequency domain approach. First the comparison of the force identifications based on Pseudo-Wavelet Deconvolution Method (PWDM) and Frequency Deconvolution Method (FDM) is introduced. Next, the excitation and structural response needed in PWDM are derived from experiment and simulation separately. Last, force reconstructions via PWDM with the simulated and measured arch structural responses are compared with the corresponding experimental input force. By virtue of this technique, the solution of this inverse problem for identifying the impact force becomes stable and accurate. Deficiently, some experience is needed in deciding the pulse width and the shift of wavelet force.
