RESUMO

Proposed in this article is an inherently conservative simulation scheme, based on the zero-order hold and a closed-form time response of the system at hand. It is shown that the simulation algorithm can be cast in a form in which the state-transition matrix, mapping a state at instant tk into a state at instant tk+1, is proper orthogonal. Hence, for an n-degree-of-freedom (dof) system, this matrix represents a rotation in the 2n-dimensional space of state variables. As a result, the numerical damping required in the simulation of undamped systems is obviated. The performance of the algorithm is illustrated with two examples drawn from engineering systems.
