Measurement data handling in identification of mechanical systems


Integration algorithms for data handling in identification of linear stationary systems from sampled transient data are proposed. The problem of identification from several simultaneously measured phase coordinates is detailed. The identification procedure is generalized to the case of irregularly sampled data. The efficiency of the algorithms is demonstrated by examples
