Purpose

Coordinate transformation matrices for Component Mode Synthesis problems.

Syntax

[t] = fe_coor(cp) [t,nc] = fe_coor(cp,opt)

Description

The different uses of fe_coor are selected by the use of options given in the argument opt which contains [type method] (with the default values [1 3]).

type=1 | (default) the output t is a basis for the kernel of the constraints cp
NC≤ NS is the number of independent constraints. | ||||

type=2 | the output argument t gives a basis of vectors linked to unit outputs followed by a basis for the kernel
If NC<NS such a matrix cannot be constructed and an error occurs. | ||||

method | the kernel can be computed using: 1 a singular value decomposition svd (default) or 3 a lu decomposition. The lu has lowest computational cost. The svd is most robust to numerical conditioning problems. |

Usage

fe_coor is used to solve problems of the general form

which are often found in CMS problems (see section 6.2.6 and [47]).

To eliminate the constraint, one determines a basis T for the kernel of [c_{int}] and projects the model
