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 considered as a preliminary study. The breathing effect of the cracks are modeled as piecewise linear stiffness and a harmonic force is applied to the cracked beam. Galerkin'sMethod is applied with multiple trial functions and nonlinear differential equations obtained are solved by using harmonic balance method with multi harmonics. Utilizing the developed model, effects of crack parameters and crack locations are studied.

Nonlinear Vibrations of a Beam with a Breathing Edge Crack Using Multiple Trial Functions
Batihan, Ali C.; Ciğeroğlu, Ender (2016-01-28)
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 nonl...

Theoretical and experimental results of the modeling of a smart plate is presented for active vibration control. The smart plate consists of a rectangular aluminum plate modeled in cantilever configuration with surface bonded piezoelectric patches. The patches are symmetrically bonded on top and bottom surfaces. The study uses ANSYS (v.5.6) software to derive the finite element model of the smart plate. By using this model, the study first gives the influences of the actuator placement and size on the resp...
