To reduce the vibration levels in a complex structure, the designer often needs to know how the vibrations in one part of a structure are transmitted to other parts at each interface of the connected components. A lumped-mass method and component mode synthesis is used to evaluate the power flow for vibrations in low-frequency range. The model mass and stiffness matrices are portioned into substructures separated by the interfaces whose power flow should be evaluated. The vibration modes of the substructure are divided into constrained and fixed interface modes corresponding to the interface and interior degree of freedoms, respectively. The effective interface mass criterion is used to rank the most dynamic important modes at each interface. The most important modes are preserved in a reduced model for computing the power flow. A numerical example of a linear system is used to illustrate the application of the new technique.
