Abstract

In most experimental investigations, the accelerometer mass effect is neglected since the accelerometer mass is small in comparison to the mass of the test construction. When a lightweight construction is examined, however, this impact is noticeable. The goal of this research is to see how mass affects thin plate vibration. The characteristics of interest were the natural frequency and its associated mode shape. Using finite element analysis, the thin plate simply supported boundary condition was studied. The mass was added to the plate and distinct sites were chosen for mounting. The mass has a considerable influence on certain of the structure's modes, while it has no effect on others, according to the findings. The mass, which was placed at the plate's highest deflection point, revealed significant variations in natural frequencies and their associated mode shapes. For the mass mounted at the nodal line of the specific mode, there are no notable changes in natural frequency or mode shapes. The influence of mass is found to be dependent on the position of the mass, the vibration mode, and the magnitude of the mass.
