Abstract

Eigenvalue curve veering is a phenomenon that has found relevance and application in a variety of structural dynamic problems ranging from localisation and stability studies to material property determination. Contemporary metrics for quantifying veering can be ambiguous and difficult to interpret. This manuscript derives three normalised indices in an effort to reconcile the deficit; two of these quantify the physical conditions which produce the behaviour while the third provides a definitive measure of the overall intensity of the effect. Numerical examples are provided to illustrate the application of the methods, which are expected to form a basis for the development of advanced analytical tools.
