A new jacobian matrix calculation method to decrease computational time in periodic force response analysis of nonlinear structures

Kızılay, Hazım Sef
The contact interfaces between the components used in high speed systems such as the turbo machinery cause nonlinear vibrations. In order to understand the dynamic characteristic of nonlinear systems, it is important to perform nonlinear vibration analysis. In nonlinear vibration analysis, due to the properties of nonlinear elements used, it is not possible to calculate the Jacobian matrix analytically or it becomes very complicated and difficult, therefore, Jacobian matrix is calculated as numerically. In each iteration, obtaining the Jacobian matrix by numeric methods greatly increases the overall calculation time. In this study, a new method is proposed for numerical Jacobian calculation of nonlinear vibration analysis of multidegree-of-freedom (MDOF) systems. The aim of the work is to obtain significant reduction of computational time for Jacobian calculation compared to classical Jacobian calculation. In order to reveal the effect of the suggested method, nonlinear equation set is derived by using receptance method. The nonlinear MDOF system is analyzed in frequency domain by using harmonic balance method (HBM) which makes nonlinear algebraic equations to be solved iteratively. The validation of the method is presented by comparing the computational times and computation reduction ratios obtained with classical Jacobian calculation and proposed Jacobian calculation method.

Although friction is mostly considered an undesirable phenomenon due to its energy dissipation characteristic, specially designed dry friction dampers utilize this feature to reduce the dynamic response of the system at the resonant frequencies. However, fretting wear due to dry friction during the operational life of the structure may drastically shift the performance from the initial design point and eventually cause drastic failures. Hence, it is important to establish a sophisticated algorithm that coup...
A Vision Based Approach for Assessing Equine Locomotion and Whole-Body Vibration Induced on a Horse Rider
Tanil, Gozde; Soylu, Reşit (2013-07-05)
Biomechanical systems such as horse locomotion are investigated by using inertial sensor systems composed of accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetometers, or by optical motion tracking systems. The major difficulty in the inertial sensor systems is the integration process. Furthermore, the signals possess noise that has to be filtered. On the other hand, the motion tracking systems are expensive and mostly adapted to indoor laboratory conditions. Hence, in some studies, horses are trained to walk on treadmi...
A New Decoupling Approach Using The Fuzzy Logic In The Vector Control Block of The Single-Phase Induction Machine
Bouhoune, Kenza; Yazid, Krim; Boucherit, Mohamed Seghir (2011-09-10)
The single-phase induction machine (SPIM) has the advantage of being powered by a single-phase voltage source. The availability of this power allows it to be widely used: electric household appliances, portable machine tools... However, this type of machine has not yet taken its whole share from various works present until now, in comparison with the three-phase induction machine.
A non-linear mathematical model for dynamic analysis of spur gears including shaft and bearing dynamics
Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat (Elsevier BV, 1991-3)
A six-degree-of-freedom non-linear semi-definite model with time varying mesh stiffness has been developed for the dynamic analysis of spur gears. The model includes a spur gear pair, two shafts, two inertias representing load and prime mover, and bearings. As the shaft and bearing dynamics have also been considered in the model, the effect of lateral-torsional vibration coupling on the dynamics of gears can be studied. In the non-linear model developed several factors such as time varying mesh stiffness an...

Mohammad, Azarifar; Dönmezer, Nazlı; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2017)
AlGaN/GaN high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) are popular solid-state electronic devices used for high power and frequency applications. Concerns exist about their reliability and performance due to harsh self-heating effects, which makes it necessary to correctly characterize their thermal performance. In the past many researchers used thermal modelling approaches for thermal characterization since variety of limiting factors still exist in the experimental measurements. In this study diversities an...
