On the numerical analysis of a carillon bell using LS-DYNA with a specific view on model validation

In this contribution we focus on the validation of a numerical model for a carillon bell. Both, the realization of the numerical model and the experimental set up are described. The results of the experimental and numerical investigations are used to estimate the quality of the numerical model. For this purpose, the eigenfrequencies of the experimental and numerical models are compared and the orthogonality of the eigenmodes is evaluated via a modal assurance criterion.
