Abstract

Although analytical techniques are generally available for the simulation of dynamic systems, often these techniques require a great deal of computer time and storage. This difficulty was vividly pointed out by a previous thesis undertaken in this Department by R. L. Webster (1). Mr. Webster undertook the determination of orthotropic material properties using dynamic response test data from plates. A major difficulty which was encountered was the enormous amount of computer time required for the simulation. This thesis is an investigation of a method which when fully developed, may provide the ability to simulate such systems much more efficiently.
