Influence of axial deformation of structural members on vibration characteristics
Moragaspitiya, H.N.P., Thambiratnam, D.P., Perera, N., & Chan, T.H.T. (2010) Influence of axial deformation of structural members on vibration characteristics.

The vibration characteristics of structural members are significantly influenced by the axial loads and hence axial deformation of the member. Numerous methods have been developed to quantify the axial loads in individual structural members using their natural frequencies. However, the findings of these methods cannot be applied to individual members in a structural framing system as the natural frequency is a global parameter for the entire framing system. This paper proposes an innovative method which uses the modal flexibility parameter to quantify axial deformations in load bearing elements of structural framing systems. The proposed method is illustrated through examples and results highlight that the method can be used to quantify the axial deformations of Individual elements of structural framing systems.
