Expanding on the single-layer model, I added the second, third, and fourth layers to the stack in COMSOL. Eigenfrequency analysis run times increased exponentially as the model multiplied in complexity. The following images document the some of the important eigenfrequencies:
First Eigenmode: y-translational, 3.34 Hz:
Second Eigenmode: x-translational, 3.39 Hz:
Third Eigenmode: z-rotational, 3.88 Hz:
Sixth Eigenmode: z-translational, 8.55 Hz:
As expected, the eigenfrequencies are generally lower, but still in the same range, as the single-layer model, because of greater mass but constant weight-per-spring distribution.
1) Extend a single stack to the full stack system, which consists of three stacks like this. Perform similar eigenmode analysis.
2) Analyze the mirror suspension system and incorporate a similar pendulum on the top plate.
3) Make transfer function measurements between seismic and mirror motions.
