Excitation signals as used in structural dynamics.

Project description

pyExSi - Excitation signals as used in structural dynamics and vibration fatigue

Supported excitation signals are:

  • pulse (e.g. half-sine)

  • random:

    • uniform random distribution
    • normal random distribution
    • pseudorandom distribution
  • random, defined by power spectral density (PSD):

    • stationary Gaussian
    • stationary non-Gaussian
    • non-stationary non-Gaussian random process
  • burst random

  • sine sweep

Simple example

A simple example on how to generate random signals on PSD basis:

import pyExSi as es
import numpy as np


N = 2**16 # number of data points of time signal
fs = 1024 # sampling frequency [Hz]
t = np.arange(0,N)/fs # time vector

# define frequency vector and one-sided flat-shaped PSD
M = N//2 + 1 # number of data points of frequency vector
freq = np.arange(0, M, 1) * fs / N # frequency vector
freq_lower = 50 # PSD lower frequency limit  [Hz]
freq_upper = 100 # PSD upper frequency limit [Hz]
PSD = es.get_psd(freq, freq_lower, freq_upper) # one-sided flat-shaped PSD

#get gaussian stationary signal
gausian_signal = es.random_gaussian((N, PSD, fs)

#get non-gaussian non-stationary signal, with kurtosis k_u=10
#amplitude modulation, modulating signal defined by PSD
PSD_modulating = es.get_psd(freq, freq_lower=1, freq_upper=10)
#define array of parameters delta_m and p
delta_m_list = np.arange(.1,2.1,.5)
p_list = np.arange(.1,2.1,.5)
#get signal
nongaussian_nonstationary_signal = es.nonstationary_signal(N,PSD,fs,k_u=5,modulating_signal=('PSD', PSD_modulating),param1_list=p_list,param2_list=delta_m_list)
