This study presents the spectral Chebyshev technique (SCT) for nonlinear vibrations of rotating beams based on a weak formulation. In addition to providing a fast-converging and precise solution for linear vibrations of structures with complex geometry, material, and physics, this method is further advanced to be able to analyze the nonlinear vibration behavior of continuous systems. Rotational motion and material gradation further complicate this nonlinear behavior. Accordingly, the beam is considered to be axially functionally graded (FG) and a model representing the forced nonlinear vibrations of the beam about steady-state equilibrium deformations (SSEDs) is developed. The model includes Coriolis, centrifugal softening, and nonlinear stiffening effects caused by coupling of the axial, chordwise, and flapwise motions, and large amplitude deformations. The integral boundary value problem for the rotating structure is discretized using the SCT and element-wise multiplication definition. As a result, mass, damping, and stiffness matrices, as well as internal nonlinear forcing functions and external forcing vectors, are obtained for a given rotating beam. This formulation provides a general representation of nonlinear strain relations in matrix form and circumvents the complexity rising from obtaining and solving the partial differential equations directly. In addition, nonlinear forcing functions are obtained in matrix form which facilitates the application of harmonic balance method easier to obtain the forced nonlinear response.


A New modal superposition method for nonlinear vibration analysis of structures using hybrid mode shapes
Ferhatoğlu, Erhan; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2017)
In this thesis, a new modal superposition method based on a hybrid mode shape concept is developed for the determination of steady state vibration response of nonlinear structures. The method is developed specifically for systems having nonlinearities where the stiffness of the system may take different limiting values. Stiffness variation of these nonlinear systems enables one to define different linear systems corresponding to each value of the limiting equivalent stiffness. Moreover, the response of the ...
A new differential formulation of acoustic scattering by rotationally symmetrical penetrable scatterers
Günalp, Nilgün; TOSUN, H (1994-07-01)
A new differential formulation is presented for acoustic wave scattering from rotationally symmetric penetrable bodies. The numerical implementation of this formulation is fairly simple, and comprises basically the construction of the state-transition matrix of a system of differential equations and the solution of a matrix equation. The validity and the accuracy of the numerical scheme are tested considering objects of known scattering behavior. Other numerical applications are also presented to demonstrat...
A Parametric Estimation Approach to Instantaneous Spectral Imaging
Öktem, Sevinç Figen; Davila, Joseph M (2014-12-01)
Spectral imaging, the simultaneous imaging and spectroscopy of a radiating scene, is a fundamental diagnostic technique in the physical sciences with widespread application. Due to the intrinsic limitation of two-dimensional (2D) detectors in capturing inherently three-dimensional (3D) data, spectral imaging techniques conventionally rely on a spatial or spectral scanning process, which renders them unsuitable for dynamic scenes. In this paper, we present a nonscanning (instantaneous) spectral imaging techn...
A Three dimensional mixed formulation nonlinear frame finite element based on hu-washizu functional
Soydaş, Ozan; Sarıtaş, Afşin; Department of Civil Engineering (2013)
A three dimensional nonlinear frame finite element is presented in this analytical study by utilizing Hu-Washizu principle with three fields of displacement, strain and stress in the variational form. Timoshenko beam theory is extended to three dimensions in order to derive strains from the displacement field. The finite element approximation for the beam uses shape functions for section forces that satisfy equilibrium and discontinous section deformations along the beam. Nonlinear analyses are performed by...
Nonlinear vibration analysis of functionally graded beams
Dedeköy, Demir; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Bediz, Bekir; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2022-8)
In this thesis, nonlinear forced vibrations of functionally graded (FG) Euler-Bernoulli Beams are studied. Two types of nonlinearities, large deformation nonlinearity and nonlinearities resulting from rotating beam dynamics, are considered. The Spectral Chebyshev Technique (SCT) is employed for solving governing equations of the spectral-temporal boundary value problems of beam vibrations, which do not always have closed-form analytical solutions. The SCT is combined with Galerkin’s method to obtain spatial...
