Abstract:

Here we present an analysis of the experimental free dynamics of beampendulum configuration. We apply the method of Proper Orthogonal Decomposition. The method identifies the dominant dynamics. Depending on the level of energy a motion is initiated, the interaction dynamics bear distinct signatures of the slow reduced dynamics and distinct signatures of the interaction dynamics.
