Most of the structural systems assembled by using bolted joints. Therefore, bolted joint models have a critical importance to estimate the behavior of the overall assembled system. There are several linear bolted joint models which consist of spring and dashpot elements in literature. While they can estimate the resonant frequency of the overall system with a sufficient accuracy, linear bolted joint models are inadequate for approximating the damping which arises from the friction in the contact interface of assembled system. On the other hand, there are examples of nonlinear bolted joint models which utilize 3D contact models to account for the frictional damping behavior in the literature. However, modeling the structures with many bolted joints by using high fidelity 3D contact models is very time consuming. Therefore, reduced order bolted joint models with sufficient accuracy are in need. In this paper, a method for modeling bolted joints in frequency domain is introduced. The joint model consists of microslip friction elements each one of which is constructed by several Coulomb friction elements in parallel and located at both sides of bolt holes.

Dynamic modeling of structural joints
Tol, Şerife; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2012)
Complex systems composed of many substructures include various structural joints connecting the substructures together. These mechanical connections play a significant role in predicting the dynamic characteristics of the assembled systems accurately. Therefore, equivalent dynamic models of joints that consist of stiffness and damping elements should be developed and the joint parameters should be determined for an accurate vibration analysis. Since it is difficult to estimate joint parameters accurately by...
Damage detection in structures using vibration measurements
Aydoğan, Mustafa Özgür; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2003)
Cracks often exist in structural members that are exposed to repeated loading, which will certainly lower the structural integrity. A crack on a structural member introduces a local flexibility which is a function of the crack depth and location. This may cause nonlinear dynamic response of the structure. In this thesis, a new method is suggested to detect and locate a crack in a structural component. The method is based on the fact that nonlinear response of a structure with a crack will be a function of t...
Multibody simulation of helicopter rotor with structural flexibility
Özturan, Bali İhsan; Kayran, Altan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2019)
Most of the multibody simulation tools used for modeling helicopter rotor use beam models of the blade and the rigid rotor hub. Stress recovery in the blade and in the hub are then performed by means of cross-sectional analysis tools or finite element analysis tools. In this study, multibody model of a helicopter main rotor is established using three dimensional flexible models of the blade and the rotor hub, and multibody simulations of the rotor are performed for the hover and the forward flight load case...
Modeling of nonlinear behavior of steel beam to column semi-rigid connections with 3-d solid finite elements
Azap, Nurettin Murat; Sarıtaş, Afşin; Department of Civil Engineering (2013)
In steel structural systems, beam to column connections are usually assumed either rigid or pinned in practice. In reality rigid connections have some flexibility and shear connections have some rigidity incorporated in their real behavior with significant nonlinearity included, as well; thus this behavior results into the categorization of some connections as semi-rigid. Beam to column connection regions contain one or more of the following components: angles, plates, welds, and bolts. Understanding the ph...
