Abstract

In this paper, a simplified finite element model to represent a riveted lap joint in structural dynamic analysis field is proposed. The rivet is modeled by spring‐damper combination elements. Several numerical models are studied with different quantities of rivets (1, 2, 3 and [...]

Abstract

Specific computer programs for identification in modal analysis of structures are not economical, and they may not always be available. This paper presents a technique for simple optimization, getting fast and quality results, in the estimation of the damping ratios for each separate [...]

Abstract

Fiber-reinforced laminated composite materials are widely used in aircraft, modern vehicles and light-weight structures. With their high elastic modulus, high strength, and capability of being tailored for a several applications, these materials offer definite advantages compared [...]

Abstract

A new alternative is presented for the estimation of modal mass, in order to scale the vibration modes obtained from operational modal analysis tests, using optimization techniques, in the frequency-independent proportional damping situation (structural or hysteretic), achieving [...]

Abstract

To determine dynamic response of mechanical system is always a complex issue. One of the core inputs for such a task is a coefficient of logarithmic damping decrement. There is no way how to determine this coefficient analytically; it needs to be measured on the final product. [...]

Abstract

The lack of standardization in vibration mode results has constituted the main shortcoming of operational modal analysis, subsequently resolved by means of the mass modification method. This is a major drawback for civil works, as it interrupts traffic on site, significantly increasing [...]

Abstract

'''High-frequency vibration can result in failure of the working blades. So suppressing vibration failure of blades becomes more and more important. Damping performance of viscoelastic block on blades is researched based on principle of finite element method, contact [...]

Abstract

The consideration of the assumption of viscous damping as a starting hypothesis in the dynamic analysis of structures can introduce a substantial error in the calculations. This is due to the energy dissipated [...]
