SOMDDPA - Second-Order Modally-Damped Dominant Pole Algorithm

  • 1. Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems


This package contains an implementation of the dominant pole algorithm for modally-damped second-order systems. The software is provided as a zip-archive and needs either MATLAB R2012b or later, or Octave 4.0.0 or later to run properly.


This work was supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG) research training group 2297 "MathCoRe", Magdeburg, and the German Research Foundation (DFG) priority program 1897: "Calm, Smooth and Smart -- Novel Approaches for Influencing Vibrations by Means of Deliberately Introduced Dissipation". We would like to thank Joost Rommes for his work on the field of dominant pole algorithms and providing algorithmic ideas by his open software repository at, as well as, Patrick K├╝rschner who helped with the initial version of this code and gave comments and ideas during the development.
