Letchford, CW and Denoon, RO and Johnson, G and Mallam, A, Dynamic characteristics of cantilever grandstand roofs, Engineering Structures, 24, (8) pp. 1085-1090. ISSN 0141-0296 (2002) [Refereed Article]

Full-scale dynamic characteristics of four grandstand roofs are reported. First mode natural frequencies, mode shape, and total damping values were obtained from forced excitation. Comparisons with finite element models of the structural response are made. Design recommendations for damping are given. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
