Use of the Morlet mother wavelet in the frequency-scale domain decomposition technique for the modal identification of ambient vibration responses

Abstract : The frequency-scale domain decomposition technique has recently been proposed for operational modal analysis. The technique is based on the Cauchy mother wavelet. In this paper, the approach is extended to the Morlet mother wavelet, which is very popular in signal processing due to its superior time-frequency localization. Based on the regressive form and an appropriate norm of the Morlet mother wavelet, the continuous wavelet transform of the power spectral density of ambient responses enables modes in the frequency-scale domain to be highlighted. Analytical developments first demonstrate the link between modal parameters and the local maxima of the continuous wavelet transform modulus. The link formula is then used as the foundation of the proposed modal identification method. Its practical procedure, combined with the singular value decomposition algorithm, is presented step by step. The proposition is finally verified using numerical examples and a laboratory test.
