# Nonlinear 3D Modeling and Vibration Analysis of Horizontal Drum Type Washing Machines

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 dampers between drum and the cabinet. In order to reduce the steady state vibration amplitude of the drum, suitable orientation angles of the springs and dampers and their implementation locations are identified. Moreover, in order to further reduce the vibration amplitude of the drum at high frequencies, instead of viscous dampers, dry friction dampers are introduced to the system. Effect of orientation angles and parameters of the dry friction damper and springs on the force transmitted to the cabinet are studied

 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...
 Nonlinear Dynamic Analysis of a Spiral Bevel Geared System Yavuz, Siar Deniz; Saribay, Zihni Burcay; Ciğeroğlu, Ender (2017-02-02) A nonlinear dynamic model of a spiral bevel gear train mounted on flexible shafts and bearings is proposed in this study. The finite element model of shafts is combined with a three-dimensional discrete mesh model of a spiral bevel gear pair. Bearing flexibilities are as well included in the model. Gear backlash is incorporated into the model in the form of clearance-type displacement functions and clearance nonlinearity and stiffness fluctuations of the bearings are neglected. A time-invariant mesh stiffne...
 Adaptive Harmonic Balance Methods, A Comparison Sert, Onur; Ciğeroğlu, Ender (2016-01-28) Harmonic balance method (HBM) is one of the most popular and powerful methods, which is used to obtain response of nonlinear vibratory systems in frequency domain. The main idea of the method is to express the response of the system in Fourier series and converting the nonlinear differential equations of motion into a set of nonlinear algebraic equations. System response can be obtained by solving this nonlinear equation set in terms of the unknown Fourier coefficients. The accuracy of the solution is great...
