Nonlinear Vibrations of a Functionally Graded Material Microbeam with Geometric Nonlinearity

In this paper, nonlinear vibration analysis of micro scale functionally graded material (FGM) beams with geometric nonlinearity due to large deflection is studied using modified couple stress theory (MCST). MCST is a nonlocal elasticity theory which includes a material length scale parameter since the size of an atomic microstructure becomes comparable to the length of the microbeam. Equations of motion of the micro scale FGM beam are obtained by using Hamilton's principle. Nonlinear free vibrations of the FGM microbeam with simply supported boundary conditions is investigated where the effect of the length scale parameter on the nonlinear natural frequencies of the microbeam is studied. The nonlinear partial differential equations of motion are converted into nonlinear ordinary differential equations by using Galerkin's Method. By using describing function method (DFM), a set of nonlinear algebraic equations are obtained which are solved by an iterative eigenvalue solver.


Nonlinear Vibrations of a Beam with a Breathing Edge Crack
Batihan, Ali C.; Ciğeroğlu, Ender (2015-02-05)
In this paper, nonlinear transverse vibration analysis of a beam with a single edge crack is studied. In literature, edge cracks are generally modeled as open cracks, in which the beam is separated into two pieces at the crack location and these pieces are connected to each other with a rotational spring to represent the effect of crack. The open edge crack model is a widely used assumption; however, it does not consider the nonlinear behavior due to opening and closing of the crack region. In this paper, a...

A computational model is developed for the analysis of elastic and partially plastic stress states in functionally graded (FGM) variable thickness rotating solid disks. The modulus of elasticity, Poisson's ratio, uniaxial yield limit and density of the disk material are assumed to vary radially in any prescribed functional forms. Small deformations and a state of plane stress are presumed. Using the von Mises yield criterion, total deformation theory and a Swift-type nonlinear hardening law, a single nonlin...
Thermal fracture analysis of orthotropic functionally graded materials using an equivalent domain integral approach
Dağ, Serkan (2006-12-01)
A new computational method based on the equivalent domain integral (EDI) is developed for mode I fracture analysis of orthotropic functionally graded materials (FGMs) subjected to thermal stresses. By using the constitutive relations of plane orthotropic thermoelasticity, generalized definition of the J-integral is converted to an equivalent domain integral to calculate the thermal stress intensity factor. In the formulation of the EDI approach, all the required thermomechanical properties are assumed to ha...
Contact mechanics of graded materials: Analyses using singular integral equations
Dağ, Serkan (2006-10-18)
Contact stress distribution at an FGM surface is evaluated using an analytical technique based on the singular integral equations. An FGM half-plane is assumed to be in sliding contact with a rigid stamp of an arbitrary profile. The functionally graded medium is assumed to possess two-dimensional material property variations. Two independent nonhomogeneity constants are used to derive the governing partial differential equations. By using the integral transform techniques, all boundary conditions are satisf...
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...
