Modal test of T-SAT / author: Sherry Draisey ; prepared by: Spar Aerospace Limited, Remote Manipulator Systems Division.: Co24-3/1-85-001E-PDF

"This report describes the modal test of a structure (referred to as T-Sat) designed to represent a simplified version of the primary structure of a communications satellite. It constitutes the second phase of work being done at RMSD on the development of modal testing of aerospace structures. Several modal test techniques, within the category of phase separation methods, were used to obtain the modal parameters. Two structures were tested independently and then combined to form the coupled T-Sat structure. The data from the tests were to be supplied for use in a substructure coupling exercise. The requirement of an experimental data base was a significant extension to experimental modal work being done within the Canadian Aerospace community. A brief description of the substructure work and results are also included within this report"--Abstract.
