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 3D Modeling and Vibration Analysis of Horizontal Drum Type Washing Machines 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 resonances of axially functionally graded beams rotating with varying speed including Coriolis effects Lotfan, Saeed; Anamagh, Mirmeysam Rafiei; Bediz, Bekir; Ciğeroğlu, Ender (2021-11-01) The purpose of the current study was to develop an accurate model to investigate the nonlinear resonances in an axially functionally graded beam rotating with time-dependent speed. To this end, two important features including stiffening and Coriolis effects are modeled based on nonlinear strain relations. Equations governing the axial, chordwise, and flapwise deformations about the determined steady-state equilibrium position are obtained, and the rotating speed variation is considered as a periodic distur...
 Nonlinear Vibrations of a Functionally Graded Material Microbeam with Geometric Nonlinearity Uz, Canan; Ciğeroğlu, Ender (2017-02-02) 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 ...
