Abstract

In this paper, a reduced order modeling framework for nonlinear vibration problems of elastic structures involving intermittent contact is proposed. Of particular interest is a vibration problem of plate-like elastic structures with a crack with a large number of degrees of freedom involved on the crack surfaces. Due to the localized nature of such nonlinearity, the number of degrees of freedom on the surfaces greatly affects the computational time of the analysis. Therefore, reducing the number of degrees of freedom on the crack surfaces without significantly sacrificing the accuracy of the results is a critical issue for conducting vibration analysis of such structures in a reasonable amount of time. The focus is placed on the development of an efficient algorithm to select a set of nodes on the crack surfaces, where nonlinear boundary conditions are imposed. The method is developed based on a procedure for selecting master degrees of freedom for Guyan reduction. The accuracy, efficiency, and optimality of the method are discussed in detail and compared with those aspects of previous methods. The advantages of the new method are demonstrated in terms of the accuracy of the frequency response and the resonant frequencies.
