Correlation between dynamic strain gage measurements and modal analysis results can be adversely affected by gage misplacement and gage misorientation. An optimization algorithm has been developed which allows the modeled strain gage locations and orientations to be varied within specified tolerances. An objective function is defined based on the least squares sum of the differences between experimental and model results. The Kuhn-Tucker conditions are then applied to find the gage locations and orientations which minimize this objective function. The procedure is applied on a one-time basis considering all measured modes of vibration simultaneously. This procedure minimizes instrumentation error which then allows the analyst to modify the model to more accurately represent other factors, including boundary conditions. Flat plate vibratory data was used to demonstrate a significant improvement in correlation between measured data and model predictions.
