Application II: Model Reduction on Component Level—Superelement Modeling Technique

  • Zu-Qing Qu
Chapter

Abstract

In the preceding chapter, the application of the dynamic condensation technique in model reduction of large size of discrete models on the system level is demonstrated by three examples. The results show that the computational effort could be reduced significantly after the implementation of the dynamic condensation technique.
