ABSTRACT
The Project works with the reanalysis of
Structural modification of a beam element based on
natural frequencies using polynomial regression method.
This method deals with the characteristics of frequency
of a vibrating system and the procedures that are available
for the modification of physical parameters of vibrating
structural system. The method is applied on a simple
cantilever beam structure and T-structure for approximate
structural dynamic reanalysis. Results obtained from the
assumed conditions of the problem indicates the high
quality approximation of natural frequencies using finite
element method and regression method.

INTRODUCTION
Most optimal design procedures are iterative
and require repeated analyses of structures obtained by
progressive modifications in design variables. Reanalysis
methods are intended to analyze efficiently structures that
are modified due to changes in the design. The object is to
evaluate the structural modification within the frame of
vibration analysis technology refers to a technique to
modify physical properties of a structure in order to change
or optimize its dynamic properties. For such changes
without solving the complete set of modified simultaneous
equations is evaluated by using the solution procedures.
Multiple repeated analyses are needed in various problems.
REANALYSIS
Reanalysis methods are intended to analyze efficiently
new designs using information from previous ones.
One of the many advantages of the substructure
technique is the possibility of repeating the analysis
for one or more of the substructures making use of the
work done on the others .This represents a significant
saving of time when modifications ones are required.
Modification is invariably required in iterative
processes for optimum design never the less, in the
case of large structure the expenses are still too high.

FINITE ELEMENT METHOD
Finite element method (FEM) is a numerical method
for solving a differential or integral equation. It has been
applied to a number of physical problems, where the
governing differential equation are available. The method
essentially consists of assuming the piecewise continuous
function for the solution and obtaining the parameters of
the functions in a manner that reduces the error in the
solution.
For problems involving complex shapes, material
properties and complicated boundary conditions, it is
difficult and in many cases intractable to obtain analytical
solutions. Numerical methods provide approximate but
acceptable solutions to such problems.
Finite element analysis is one of such numerical procedure
for analyzing and solving wide range of complex
engineering problems (may be structural, heat conduction,
flow field...) which are complicated to be solved
satisfactorily by any of the available classical analytical
methods.

REGRESSION ANALYSIS
The Statistical determination of the relationship
between two or more dependent variables has been
referred to as a correlation analysis, whereas the
determination of the relationship between
dependent and independent variables has come to
be known as a regression analysis.
The polynomial equation for regression method,

The polynomial regression method is used for
obtaining natural frequencies of cantilever beam and
T-structure by varying width and depth for dynamic
reanalysis.
VIBRATIONS
Vibration is a mechanical condition where
oscillation develops around an equilibrium point.
These oscillations can be either periodic like a
pendulum or random such as the movement of a tire
on a road. Vibration can be desirable like musical
instruments or speakers in a sound system, or more
often it is undesirable. The vibrations of engines,
electrical motors are unwanted and basically it is a
sign of energy being wasted.

Modal Analysis:
Modal analysis computes the natural frequencies and
mode shapes of the structure. The natural frequencies are
the frequencies at which a structure will tend to vibrate if
subjected to a disturbance. For example, the strings of a
piano are each tuned to vibrate at a specific frequency. The
deformed shape at a specific natural frequency is called the
mode shape. Modal analysis is also called as Eigen values
analysis.
Procedure for modal analysis in ANSYS

Build the model of cantilever beam as shown in figure.
Define the material properties such as youngs modulus
and density etc.,
Apply boundary conditions
Enter the ANSYS solution processor in which analysis
type is taken as modal analysis, and by taking mode
extraction method, by defining number of modes to be
extracted.

The results obtained from FEM are approximately
nearer to Conventional results. By considering more

The Reanalysis of both case studies has been carried
out using Polynomial Regression Method for the four
