Feb). The more advanced methods overcoming drawbacks of the PP method when the modes are spaced closely are frequency domain decomposition method (FDD) (Brincker R, Zhang L, Andersen P (2001) Modal identification of output-only systems using frequency domain decomposition. Smart Mat Struct 10:441–445) or complex mode indication function method (CMIF) (Shih CY, Tsuei YG, Allemang RJ, Brown DL (1988) Complex mode indication function and its applications to spatial domain parameter estimation. Mech Syst Signal Process 2(4):367–377). The methods compute the singular value decomposition (SVD) of the spectral density matrix: [G_YY (ω)]=[U][Ʃ] [U]^H where [U] is the unitary matrix holding singular vectors, [U]^H is Hermitian adjacent of the matrix [U], [Ʃ] is the matrix of singular values in descending order. The first singular value contains the information about the dominant mode at the considered frequency. The number of nonzero elements in [Ʃ] equals the rank of the spectral density matrix therefore the closely spaced modes may be identified. Moreover, the number of dominant singular values at a certain frequency equals the number of modes that give a significant contribution to the structural response at that particular frequency. The damping ratios also may be estimated through enhanced version of this method known as Enhanced Frequency Domain Decomposition (EFFD) (Brincker et al. 2001, Gade et al. 2005). In this method the damping evaluated in time domain by use the…

Crematorium Embalmer: The lady at the crematorium showed us the crematory machine and went through what happened to the bodies inside them. She also went in depth into the world of embalming and how that was done. She showed us the two chemicals added to the bodies in preparation for their funerals, that were preservatives called arterials and formalin. The funeral director also informed us all that when someone loses their teeth to drug addiction, she has a plastic insert that is placed between…

why certain things decompose faster than others? I was interest in doing this project because I’ve always wondered why certain things decompose faster than others, and why they decompose. For my science fair project I want to find out why what types of decomposition there are, and how the process of decomposition works. I like to observe the tiny things in life, and why it works, or why it happens, and I feel like I could gain some knowledge on biodegradable, compostable, and decomposable…

Native American mortuary practices have evolved throughout time; mortuary changes coincide with changes in technology, sedentism, and religious customs. Customs evolve over time in every facet of society; however, mortuary practices are often ignored by the main piece of a population. As an employee of James Funeral Home I have learned how little the majority of the culture knows about preparing and processing their deceased loved ones. As an insider, my interest was piqued into the past…

Existence of God The argument about Gods existence is one of the most exploited subjects among different scholars and philosophers in the world. It is a question that most people have been defeated to tackle in the sense that, no significant evidence has been set to dispute or acknowledge the fact that God exists. In this context, it is still an ongoing process, and therefore different people have set different explanations. To most individuals and religious groups in the world, the existence…

In “Meditation Three” Rene’ starts out with an attempt to contemplate the existence of God by closing his eyes and meditate. He his struck by the very thoughts that every individual does at the initiation of this process. He starts out by purging his thoughts but upon realizing the impossibility of his action he starts objectifying them. The injection of god happens when he contemplates that deception might occur of evidentiary matters. Yet he profoundly asserts himself in a moment of…

acid-base reaction. Heat is also detected in all of the reaction signifying it is conducting some sort of energy or electricity. Therefore, reactions nine, eleven, twelve, and fourteen are all acid-base chemical reactions because of the chemical properties that they share. Reactions eight and fifteen were all discovered to be decomposition reactions because of their physical observations. A chemical decomposition reaction is a reaction in which a compound, the reactant, is broken down into…

gender, age, health, attitudes, and values.” (p.3) For example if someone grew up in rural, farm country in Wisconsin, with small schools and less populace access they tend to be more reserved as well as a working person behind the scenes within a group setting. Whereas you taking someone from big ranch country of Texas, with large schools, and metropolitan access their background might influence them to be out going within a group setting. Sometimes it’s not even where someone grew up but it…
