Deterministic and Random Response Evaluation of a Straight Beam with Nonlinear Boundary Conditions
Deterministic and random responses of one-dimensional continuous structures with nonlinear boundary conditions are evaluated in this article. Dynamic behaviors (i.e., the time-domain response for the deterministic case and mean-square response for the stochastic case) of a straight beam with a cubic nonlinear elastic boundary is investigated numerically.
The nonlinear vibration problem is discretized by a new global spatial discretization method, and its responses are compared with those from the finite element method and assumed mode method.
The effects of selected various types of linear homogeneous boundary conditions and the number of expansion modes on the accuracy of the responses under harmonic excitation are discussed. Detailed discussions on the influence of nonlinear boundary conditions on dynamic behaviors uncover a counter-intuitive phenomenon: with the increase of the nonlinear spring stiffness, the stationary mean-square displacement of the mid-point descends first and then ascends slightly.
Numerical results show that the present procedure possesses high precision for evaluating harmonic responses for both low-frequency and high-frequency excitations. Furthermore, it can be directly generalized to two-dimensional continuous systems and various types of nonlinear boundary conditions.
