Studying the Performance Nonlinear Systems Solvers Applied to the Random Vibration Test
In this paper we compare the performance of four solvers for systems of nonlinear algebraic equations applied to the random vibration test, which requires a solution of a system of 512 or more equations. Experimental results obtained for two test cases are presented and discussed.
