Random processes - basic concepts
 • Deterministic and random processes :
• both continuous functions of time (usually), mathematical concepts

 • deterministic processes :
      physical process is represented by explicit mathematical relation

  • Example :
    response of a single mass-spring-damper in free vibration in laboratory

 • Random processes :
 result of a large number of separate causes. Described in probabilistic terms
    and by properties which are averages
Random processes - basic concepts

• random processes :
                                                              fX(x)
           x(t)




                                                time, t




• The probability density function describes the general distribution of the
  magnitude of the random process, but it gives no information on the time
  or frequency content of the process
Random processes - basic concepts
• Averaging and stationarity :
• Underlying process
• Sample records which are individual representations of the
   underlying process
• Ensemble averaging :
   properties of the process are obtained by averaging over a collection or
   „ensemble‟ of sample records using values at corresponding times

• Time averaging :
   properties are obtained by averaging over a single record in time
Random processes - basic concepts

 • Stationary random process :
  • Ensemble averages do not vary with time

  • Ergodic process :
     stationary process in which averages from a single record are the same
     as those obtained from averaging over the ensemble

     Most stationary random processes can be treated as ergodic

   Wind loading from extra - tropical synoptic gales can be treated as stationary
    random processes
Wind loading from hurricanes - stationary over shorter periods <2 hours
                         - non stationary over the duration of the storm

   Wind loading from thunderstorms, tornadoes - non stationary
Random processes - basic concepts
• Mean value :

            x(t)



                                                x

                                                    time, t   T
                                  1    T
                          x   Lim          x(t)dt
                              T   T   0


• The mean value, x , is the height of the rectangular area having the same
  area as that under the function x(t)

• Can also be defined as the first moment of the p.d.f. (ref. Lecture 3)
Random processes - basic concepts
• Mean square value, variance, standard deviation :

                                            x
           x(t)



                                                      x


                                                            time, t       T
                             2         1    T
   mean square value, x            Lim          x 2 (t)dt
                                   T   T    0


                                       2        1      T              2
   variance,        σ   2
                        x   x(t) x          Lim             x(t) - x dt
                                            T   T      0

  (average of the square of the deviation of x(t) from the mean value, x)

   standard deviation,      x,   is the square root of the variance
Random processes - basic concepts

• Autocorrelation :
             x(t)




                                                               time, t    T
• The autocorrelation, or autocovariance, describes the general dependency
  of x(t) with its value at a short time later, x(t+ )

                              1    T
               x    ( )   Lim          x(t) - x . x(t τ) - x dt
                          T   T    0

        The value of                                                          2
                          x(   ) at equal to 0 is the variance,           x

   Normalized auto-correlation : R( )=                     2             R(0)= 1
                                                x(   )/   x
Random processes - basic concepts

         R( )




                0
                                            Time lag,




• The autocorrelation for a random process eventually decays to zero at
  large

• The autocorrelation for a sinusoidal process (deterministic) is a cosine
  function which does not decay to zero
Random processes - basic concepts
 • Autocorrelation :

                1
                                               T1        R( )d
                                                     0
         R( )




                0
                                            Time lag,
• The area under the normalized autocorrelation function for the fluctuating
  wind velocity measured at a point is a measure of the average time scale
  of the eddies being carried passed the measurement point, say T1

• If we assume that the eddies are being swept passed at the mean velocity,
    U.T1 is a measure of the average length scale of the eddies

• This is known as the „integral length scale‟, denoted by lu
Random processes - basic concepts

• Spectral density :
          Sx(n)




                                                          frequency, n

• The spectral density, (auto-spectral density, power spectral density, spectrum)
  describes the average frequency content of a random process, x(t)
                                             2
            Basic relationship (1) :    σx           S x (n) dn
                                                 0

     The quantity Sx(n). n represents the contribution to             2 from   the
                                                                  x
     frequency increment n

                  Units of Sx(n) : [units of x]2 . sec
Random processes - basic concepts

• Spectral density :

        Basic relationship (2) :                 2         2
                                    Sx (n)   Lim   X T (n)
                                             T   T

  Where XT(n) is the Fourier Transform of the process x(t) taken over the
  time interval -T/2<t<+T/2

   The above relationship is the basis for the usual method of
   obtaining the spectral density of experimental data

    Usually a Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) algorithm is used
Random processes - basic concepts

• Spectral density :

       Basic relationship (3) :                                   i2 n
                                     Sx (n)    2         x ( )e          dτ
                                                     -


  The spectral density is twice the Fourier Transform of the autocorrelation
  function

   Inverse relationship :

           ρx ( )    Re al        Sx (n)e i 2 n dn           Sx (n)cos(2 n )dn
                             0                           0


    Thus the spectral density and auto-correlation are closely linked -
    they basically provide the same information about the process x(t)
Random processes - basic concepts
• Cross-correlation :
             x(t)

                                           x

                                               time, t   T
              y(t)


                                       y

                                               time, t   T
  • The cross-correlation function describes the general dependency of x(t)
    with another random process y(t+ ), delayed by a time delay,
                             1   T
               cxy ( )   Lim         x(t) - x . y(t τ) - y dt
                         T   T   0
Random processes - basic concepts

• Covariance :

  • The covariance is the cross correlation function with the time delay, , set
    to zero

                                   1     T
          c xy (0) x (t).y (t) Lim           x(t) - x . y(t) - y dt
                               T   T    0



        Note that here x'(t) and y'(t) are used to denote the fluctuating
        parts of x(t) and y(t) (mean parts subtracted)



            (Section 3.3.5 in “Wind loading of structures”)
Random processes - basic concepts

• Correlation coefficient :

  • The correlation coefficient, , is the covariance normalized by the
    standard deviations of x and y

                                     x' (t).y'(t)
                                ρ
                                       σ x .σ y

     When x and y are identical to each other, the value of   is +1
     (full correlation)

     When y(t)= x(t), the value of     is   1

      In general,   1<   < +1
Random processes - basic concepts

• Correlation - application :
• The fluctuating wind loading of a tower depends on the correlation
  coefficient between wind velocities and hence wind loads, at various heights




                                                                   z2
                                                           z1




                                                   u' (z1 ).u'(z2 )
        For heights, z1, and z2 :   ρ(z1 , z 2 )
                                                   σ u (z1 ).σ u (z2 )
Random processes - basic concepts

 • Cross spectral density :

                                                                          i2 n
By analogy with the spectral density :     Sxy (n)    2       c xy ( )e          dτ
                                                          -


    The cross spectral density is twice the Fourier Transform of the cross-
    correlation function for the processes x(t) and y(t)

      The cross-spectral density (cross-spectrum) is a complex number :
                               Sxy ( n)   C xy (n) iQxy (n)

      Cxy(n) is the co(-incident) spectral density - (in phase)
      Qxy(n) is the quad (-rature) spectral density - (out of phase)
Random processes - basic concepts

• Normalized co- spectral density :
                                                           C xy (n)
                                             xy   (n)
                                                         S x (n).S y (n)

  It is effectively a correlation coefficient for fluctuations at frequency, n


  Application : Excitation of resonant vibration of structures by
  fluctuating wind forces


 If x(t) and y(t) are local fluctuating forces acting at different parts
 of the structure, xy(n1) describes how well the forces are
 correlated („synchronized‟) at the structural natural frequency, n1
Random processes - basic concepts
• Input - output relationships :
             Input x(t)                        Output y(t)
                             Linear system



 There are many cases in which it is of interest to know how an input random
 process x(t) is modified by a system to give a random output process y(t)
   Application : The input is wind force - the output is structural
   response (e.g. displacement acceleration, stress). The „system‟ is
   the dynamic characteristics of the structure.
   Linear system : 1) output resulting from a sum of inputs, is equal
   to the sum of outputs produced by each input individually
   (additive property)
   Linear system : 2) output produced by a constant times the input,
   is equal to the constant times the output produced by the input
   alone (homogeneous property)
Random processes - basic concepts
 • Input - output relationships :
Relation between spectral density of output and spectral density of input :
                                          2
                        Sy (n) A . H(n) .Sx (n)

  |H(n)|2 is a transfer function, frequency response function, or „admittance‟


 Sx(n)                      A.|H(n)|2                       Sy(n)



         frequency, n

  • 1. Wind loading and structural response Lecture 5 Dr. J.D. Holmes Random processes - basic concepts
  • 2. Random processes - basic concepts • Topics : • Concepts of deterministic and random processes stationarity, ergodicity • Basic properties of a single random process mean, standard deviation, auto-correlation, spectral density • Joint properties of two or more random processes correlation, covariance, cross spectral density, simple input-output relations Refs. : J.S. Bendat and A.G. Piersol “Random data: analysis and measurement procedures” J. Wiley, 3rd ed, 2000. D.E. Newland “Introduction to Random Vibrations, Spectral and Wavelet Analysis” Addison-Wesley 3rd ed. 1996
  • 3. Random processes - basic concepts • Deterministic and random processes : • both continuous functions of time (usually), mathematical concepts • deterministic processes : physical process is represented by explicit mathematical relation • Example : response of a single mass-spring-damper in free vibration in laboratory • Random processes : result of a large number of separate causes. Described in probabilistic terms and by properties which are averages
  • 4. Random processes - basic concepts • random processes : fX(x) x(t) time, t • The probability density function describes the general distribution of the magnitude of the random process, but it gives no information on the time or frequency content of the process
  • 5. Random processes - basic concepts • Averaging and stationarity : • Underlying process • Sample records which are individual representations of the underlying process • Ensemble averaging : properties of the process are obtained by averaging over a collection or „ensemble‟ of sample records using values at corresponding times • Time averaging : properties are obtained by averaging over a single record in time
  • 6. Random processes - basic concepts • Stationary random process : • Ensemble averages do not vary with time • Ergodic process : stationary process in which averages from a single record are the same as those obtained from averaging over the ensemble Most stationary random processes can be treated as ergodic Wind loading from extra - tropical synoptic gales can be treated as stationary random processes Wind loading from hurricanes - stationary over shorter periods <2 hours - non stationary over the duration of the storm Wind loading from thunderstorms, tornadoes - non stationary
  • 7. Random processes - basic concepts • Mean value : x(t) x time, t T 1 T x Lim x(t)dt T T 0 • The mean value, x , is the height of the rectangular area having the same area as that under the function x(t) • Can also be defined as the first moment of the p.d.f. (ref. Lecture 3)
  • 8. Random processes - basic concepts • Mean square value, variance, standard deviation : x x(t) x time, t T 2 1 T mean square value, x Lim x 2 (t)dt T T 0 2 1 T 2 variance, σ 2 x x(t) x Lim x(t) - x dt T T 0 (average of the square of the deviation of x(t) from the mean value, x) standard deviation, x, is the square root of the variance
  • 9. Random processes - basic concepts • Autocorrelation : x(t) time, t T • The autocorrelation, or autocovariance, describes the general dependency of x(t) with its value at a short time later, x(t+ ) 1 T x ( ) Lim x(t) - x . x(t τ) - x dt T T 0 The value of 2 x( ) at equal to 0 is the variance, x Normalized auto-correlation : R( )= 2 R(0)= 1 x( )/ x
  • 10. Random processes - basic concepts • Autocorrelation : 1 R( ) 0 Time lag, • The autocorrelation for a random process eventually decays to zero at large • The autocorrelation for a sinusoidal process (deterministic) is a cosine function which does not decay to zero
  • 11. Random processes - basic concepts • Autocorrelation : 1 T1 R( )d 0 R( ) 0 Time lag, • The area under the normalized autocorrelation function for the fluctuating wind velocity measured at a point is a measure of the average time scale of the eddies being carried passed the measurement point, say T1 • If we assume that the eddies are being swept passed at the mean velocity, U.T1 is a measure of the average length scale of the eddies • This is known as the „integral length scale‟, denoted by lu
  • 12. Random processes - basic concepts • Spectral density : Sx(n) frequency, n • The spectral density, (auto-spectral density, power spectral density, spectrum) describes the average frequency content of a random process, x(t) 2 Basic relationship (1) : σx S x (n) dn 0 The quantity Sx(n). n represents the contribution to 2 from the x frequency increment n Units of Sx(n) : [units of x]2 . sec
  • 13. Random processes - basic concepts • Spectral density : Basic relationship (2) : 2 2 Sx (n) Lim X T (n) T T Where XT(n) is the Fourier Transform of the process x(t) taken over the time interval -T/2<t<+T/2 The above relationship is the basis for the usual method of obtaining the spectral density of experimental data Usually a Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) algorithm is used
  • 14. Random processes - basic concepts • Spectral density : Basic relationship (3) : i2 n Sx (n) 2 x ( )e dτ - The spectral density is twice the Fourier Transform of the autocorrelation function Inverse relationship : ρx ( ) Re al Sx (n)e i 2 n dn Sx (n)cos(2 n )dn 0 0 Thus the spectral density and auto-correlation are closely linked - they basically provide the same information about the process x(t)
  • 15. Random processes - basic concepts • Cross-correlation : x(t) x time, t T y(t) y time, t T • The cross-correlation function describes the general dependency of x(t) with another random process y(t+ ), delayed by a time delay, 1 T cxy ( ) Lim x(t) - x . y(t τ) - y dt T T 0
  • 16. Random processes - basic concepts • Covariance : • The covariance is the cross correlation function with the time delay, , set to zero 1 T c xy (0) x (t).y (t) Lim x(t) - x . y(t) - y dt T T 0 Note that here x'(t) and y'(t) are used to denote the fluctuating parts of x(t) and y(t) (mean parts subtracted) (Section 3.3.5 in “Wind loading of structures”)
  • 17. Random processes - basic concepts • Correlation coefficient : • The correlation coefficient, , is the covariance normalized by the standard deviations of x and y x' (t).y'(t) ρ σ x .σ y When x and y are identical to each other, the value of is +1 (full correlation) When y(t)= x(t), the value of is 1 In general, 1< < +1
  • 18. Random processes - basic concepts • Correlation - application : • The fluctuating wind loading of a tower depends on the correlation coefficient between wind velocities and hence wind loads, at various heights z2 z1 u' (z1 ).u'(z2 ) For heights, z1, and z2 : ρ(z1 , z 2 ) σ u (z1 ).σ u (z2 )
  • 19. Random processes - basic concepts • Cross spectral density : i2 n By analogy with the spectral density : Sxy (n) 2 c xy ( )e dτ - The cross spectral density is twice the Fourier Transform of the cross- correlation function for the processes x(t) and y(t) The cross-spectral density (cross-spectrum) is a complex number : Sxy ( n) C xy (n) iQxy (n) Cxy(n) is the co(-incident) spectral density - (in phase) Qxy(n) is the quad (-rature) spectral density - (out of phase)
  • 20. Random processes - basic concepts • Normalized co- spectral density : C xy (n) xy (n) S x (n).S y (n) It is effectively a correlation coefficient for fluctuations at frequency, n Application : Excitation of resonant vibration of structures by fluctuating wind forces If x(t) and y(t) are local fluctuating forces acting at different parts of the structure, xy(n1) describes how well the forces are correlated („synchronized‟) at the structural natural frequency, n1
  • 21. Random processes - basic concepts • Input - output relationships : Input x(t) Output y(t) Linear system There are many cases in which it is of interest to know how an input random process x(t) is modified by a system to give a random output process y(t) Application : The input is wind force - the output is structural response (e.g. displacement acceleration, stress). The „system‟ is the dynamic characteristics of the structure. Linear system : 1) output resulting from a sum of inputs, is equal to the sum of outputs produced by each input individually (additive property) Linear system : 2) output produced by a constant times the input, is equal to the constant times the output produced by the input alone (homogeneous property)
  • 22. Random processes - basic concepts • Input - output relationships : Relation between spectral density of output and spectral density of input : 2 Sy (n) A . H(n) .Sx (n) |H(n)|2 is a transfer function, frequency response function, or „admittance‟ Sx(n) A.|H(n)|2 Sy(n) frequency, n Proof : Bendat & Piersol, Newland
