In this paper, a beam like structure with a single edge crack is modeled and analyzed in order to study the nonlinear effects of breathing crack on transverse vibrations of a beam. 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, partial differential equation of motion obtained by Euler-Bernoulli beam theory is converted into nonlinear ordinary differential equations by using Galerkin's method with multiple trial functions. The nonlinear behavior of the crack region is represented as a bilinear stiffness matrix. The nonlinear ordinary differential equations are converted into a set of nonlinear algebraic equations by using harmonic balance method (HBM) with multi harmonics. Under the action of a harmonic forcing, the effect of crack parameters on the vibrational behavior of the cracked beam is studied.

Nonlinear Transverse Vibrations of a Beam with Multiple Breathing Edge Cracks
Batihan, Ali C.; Ciğeroğlu, Ender (2017-02-02)
One step beyond the studies of transverse vibration of beams with a breathing edge crack is the verification of the theoretical crack beam models with an experimental test set up. Beams with a single breathing edge crack can be used as a specimen for the experimental test. However, there is no assurance against the unexpected additional cracks in the specimens, whichmay cause unexpected results. Therefore, in this paper nonlinear transverse vibration of a beam with multiple breathing edge cracks is consider...
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...

Baykal, Cem; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Yazıcıoğlu, Yiğit (2020-01-01)
In this study, a nonlinear 3-D mathematical model for horizontal drum type washing machines is developed considering rotating unbalance type excitation. Nonlinear differential equations of motion are converted into a set of nonlinear algebraic equations by using Harmonic Balance Method (HBM). The resulting nonlinear algebraic equations are solved by using Newton’s method with arc-length continuation. Several case studies are performed in order to observe the effects of orientation angles of springs and damp...
Nonlinear vibration analysis of L-shaped beams and their use in vibration reduction
Ekici, Yiğitcan; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Yazıcıoğlu, Yiğit; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2022-9)
In this thesis, nonlinear vibration analysis of both fixed L-shaped beam and L-shaped beam attached to a single degree of freedom (SDOF) system is performed for several cases with different structural parameters to observe the effect of these parameters. Then these beams are proposed to reduce the vibration amplitudes of certain structures, and the nonlinear effects on the dynamic responses of these structures are investigated. The nonlinear dynamic model of the L-shaped beam is obtained by using Euler-Bern...
