Abstract: Subcomponent modelling is a commonly used method to gain information on the dynamic behaviour of complex assembly structures using smaller and more efficient models. For instance point mobility calculations on subcomponent level are used to obtain more accurate input parameters for Statistical Energy Analysis (SEA) models. A full system analysis is often too computationally expensive, so normally only individual subcomponents of the structure are extracted and analysed. This procedure yields a large reduction in computational effort, but also often results in
a substantial loss of accuracy. This is due to the use of an approximation of (virtual) boundary conditions to represent the eliminated remainder part of the structure, i.e. the full structure except the subcomponent at hand. Commonly, these boundary conditions are simplified by assuming clamped, free or simply supported edges. However, this is a huge simplification and may introduce
large errors. Earlier work has shown that a more accurate description of the boundary conditions can be achieved by using a combination of so-called dynamic waves. In this paper, the method is developed further and a more efficient wave extraction procedure is presented.
