In this paper, we address the identification of the spectral and spatial features of random flow excitations for multisupported tubular components such as steam generator tubes and nuclear fuel rods. In the proposed work, source identification is performed from a set of measured vibratory responses, in the following manner: (1) The modal response spectra and modeshape amplitudes at the measurement locations are first extracted through a blind decomposition of the physical response matrix, using the second order blind identification (SOBI) method; (2) the continuous modeshapes are interpolated from the identified values at the measurement locations; (3) the system modal parameters are identified from the modal responses using a simple single degree of freedom (SDOF) fitting technique; (4) inversion from the modal response spectra is performed for the identification of the modal excitation spectra; (5) finally, an equivalent physical excitation spectrum as well as the flow velocity profiles are estimated. The proposed approach is illustrated with identification results based on realistic numerical simulations of a multisupported tube under linear support conditions.
