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 beam like structure with a breathing type crack is studied. Due to the breathing nature of the crack, crack surfaces contact with each other for some period of the motion and separate in the rest of the cycle. This nonlinear behavior of the crack region is modeled by representing the system as a single degree of freedom system (SDOF) with a bilinear stiffness by Galerkin's Method. Nonlinear differential equations of motion obtained by using Euler-Bernoulli beam theory are converted into nonlinear algebraic equations by using harmonic balance method (HBM). Under the action of a harmonic forcing, the effect of crack parameters on the vibrational behavior of the cracked beam is presented.

 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...
 Nonlinear Vibration Analysis of Uniform and Functionally Graded Beams with Spectral Chebyshev Technique and Harmonic Balance Method Dedekoy, Demir; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Bediz, Bekir (2023-01-01) In this paper, nonlinear forced vibrations of uniform and functionally graded Euler-Bernoulli beams with large deformation are studied. Spectral and temporal boundary value problems of beam vibrations do not always have closed-form analytical solutions. As a result, many approximate methods are used to obtain the solution by discretizing the spatial problem. Spectral Chebyshev technique (SCT) utilizes the Chebyshev polynomials for spatial discretization and applies Galerkin's method to obtain boundary condi...
 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 ...
