I don’t understand this Engineering question and need help to study.
Extract natural frequencies and damping ratios from the frequency response magnitude plots from measurements of 2 components from modal tests performed by the instructor. Use the two .vna data files and dataplots.m Matlab file provided in Canvas Files to generate the frequency response magnitude plots. Summarize your results in a table for each component.
For each component include 1) frequency response magnitude plot, 2) frequency response magnitude plots zoomed-in around the natural frequencies, and 3) table summarizing natural frequencies and damping ratios. Mark up zoomed-in plots with appropriate lines and numbers used. Show all calculations.
See modal testing lecture video for detailed description and instruction
