Experimental Modal Analysis of Violins Made from Composites†
AbstractSix prototype violins made from composite materials are made and investigated using experimental modal analysis with the roving hammer method. The average FRF’s obtained show an influence of the materials on the vibrational response up to 2200 Hz. The A0 breathing mode and B1- mode are identified and are found to be significantly lower than in classical wooden violins. Additional measurements with a Laser Doppler Vibrometer and shaker found the same modes with a small difference in frequency (3–8 Hz).
