Computation of quasi-periodic localised vibrations in nonlinear cyclic and symmetric structures using harmonic balance methods
FONTANELA, Filipe; GROLET, Aurélien; SALLES, Loïc; HOFFMANN, Norbert
In this paper we develop a fully numerical approach to compute quasi-periodic vibrations bifurcating from nonlinear periodic states in cyclic and symmetric structures. The focus is on localised oscillations arising from modulationally unstable travelling waves induced by strong external excitations. The computational strategy is based on the periodic and quasi-periodic harmonic balance methods together with an arc-length continuation scheme. Due to the presence of multiple localised states, a new method to switch from periodic to quasi-periodic states is proposed. The algorithm is applied to two different minimal models for bladed disks vibrating in large amplitudes regimes. In the first case, each sector of the bladed disk is modelled by a single degree of freedom, while in the second application a second degree of freedom is included to account for the disk inertia. In both cases the algorithm has identified and tracked multiple quasi-periodic localised states travelling around the structure in the form of dissipative solitons

Multistability and localization in forced cyclic symmetric structures modelled by weakly-coupled Duffing oscillators
PAPANGELO, Antonio; FONTANELA, Filipe; GROLET, Aurélien; CIAVARELLA, Michele; HOFFMANN, Norbert
Many engineering structures are composed of weakly coupled sectors assembled in a cyclic and ideally symmetric configuration, which can be simplified as forced Duffing oscillators. In this paper, we study the emergence of localized states in the weakly nonlinear regime. We show that multiple spatially localized solutions may exist, and the resulting bifurcation diagram strongly resembles the snaking pattern observed in a variety of fields in physics, such as optics and fluid dynamics. Moreover, in the transition from the linear to the nonlinear behaviour isolated branches of solutions are identified. Localization is caused by the hardening effect introduced by the nonlinear stiffness, and occurs at large excitation levels. Contrary to the case of mistuning, the presented localization mechanism is triggered by the nonlinearities and arises in perfectly homogeneous systems.

Comparison of ANM and Predictor-Corrector Method to Continue Solutions of Harmonic Balance Equations

In this work we apply and compare two numerical path continuation algorithms for solving algebraic equations arising when applying the Harmonic Balance Method to compute periodic regimes of nonlinear dynamical systems. The first algorithm relies on a predictor-corrector scheme and an Alternating Frequency-Time approach. This algorithm can be applied directly also to non-analytic nonlinearities. The second algorithm relies on a high-order Taylor series expansion of the solution path (the so-called Asymptotic Numerical Method) and can be formulated entirely in the frequency domain. The series expansion can be viewed as a high-order predictor equipped with inherent error estimation capabilities, which permits to avoid correction steps. The second algorithm is limited to analytic nonlinearities, and typically additional variables need to be introduced to cast the equation system into a form that permits the efficient computation of the required high-order derivatives. We apply the algorithms to selected vibration problems involving mechanical systems with polynomial stiffness, dry friction and unilateral contact nonlinearities. We assess the influence of the algorithmic parameters of both methods to draw a picture of their differences and similarities. We analyze the computational performance in detail, to identify bottlenecks of the two methods.

The emergence of localised vibrations in cyclic and symmetric rotating struc-tures, such as bladed disks of aircraft engines, has challenged engineers in thepast few decades. In the linear regime, localised states may arise due to alack of symmetry, as for example induced by inhomogeneities. However, whenstructures deviate from the linear behaviour, e.g. due to material nonlinearities,geometric nonlinearities like large deformations, or other nonlinear elements likejoints or friction interfaces, localised states may arise even in perfectly symmet-ric structures. In this paper, a system consisting of coupled Duffing oscillatorswith linear viscous damping is subjected to external travelling wave forcing.The system may be considered a minimal model for bladed disks in turboma-chinery operating in the nonlinear regime, where such excitation may arise dueto imbalance or aerodynamic excitation. We demonstrate that near the reso-nance, in this non-conservative regime, localised vibration states bifurcate fromthe travelling waves. Complex bifurcation diagrams result, comprising stableand unstable dissipative solitons. The localised solutions can also be continuednumerically to a conservative limit, where solitons bifurcate from the backbonecurves of the travelling waves at finite amplitudes.

Subharmonic centrifugal pendulum vibration absorbers allowing a rotational mobility
MAHE, V.; RENAULT, Alexandre; GROLET, Aurélien; MAHE, Hervé; THOMAS, Olivier
Rotating machines are often subjected to fluctuating torques, leading to vibrations of the rotor and finally to premature fatigue and noise pollution. This work addresses a new design of centrifugal pendulum vibration absorbers (CPVAs), used to reduce the vibrations in an automotive transmission line. These passive devices, composed of several masses oscillating along a trajectory relative to the rotor, are here tuned at a subharmonic of the targeted harmonic torque frequency. Thanks to the inherent non-linearities, a CPVA with two masses oscillating in phase opposition is able to efficiently counteract the input torque, with particular features such as saturation phenomena. This work particularly extends previous works to a new class of CPVA, whose peculiarity is that masses admit a significant rotation motion relative to the rotor, thus adding the benefit of their rotatory inertia. Results on the system’s subharmonic response and its stability are obtained thanks to an analytical perturbation method, and design
guidelines are proposed. The validity of those results is also confirmed through comparisons with numerical solutions and the performance of this subharmonic system is compared to that of a classical CPVA tuned at the torque frequency.

The automotive industry uses centrifugal pendulum vibration absorbers (CPVAs) to reduce vibrations of the transmission system. These passive devices are made of several masses oscillating along a given path relative to a rotor. This work addresses a recent design of CPVA, in which the pendulums are allowed to rotate relatively to the rotor. The dynamic stability of this CPVA and the shifting of its operating point are investigated in this paper. These two aspects, crucial for an optimal vibration reduction, are assessed using an analytic dynamical model based on a perturbation method. The results obtained allow to propose new design guidelines. The validity of the model is confirmed through a comparison with a numerical resolution of the
system’s dynamics.

In this paper, we study and compare performance and robustness of linear and nonlinear Lanchester dampers. The linear Lanchester damper consists of a small mass attached to a primary system through a linear dashpot, whereas the nonlinear Lanchester damper is linked to the primary mass through dry friction forces. In each case, we propose a semi-analytical
method for computing the frequency response, for different values of the design parameters, in order to evaluate the performance and robustness of the two kinds of damper. Overall, it is shown that linear Lanchester dampers perform better than nonlinear damper both in terms of attenuation and robustness. Moreover, the nonlinear frequency response curves, that include the
intrinsic non-smooth nature of the friction force, may serve as reference curve for further numerical studies.

In this paper, a method for computing the dynamics of a geared system excited by its static transmission error is proposed. The method is based on the iterative spectral method (ISM) and on the harmonic balance method (HBM). It is shown that the dynamic transmission error (DTE) can be obtained in the frequency domain by solving a linear system of equations, which in turn allows the computation of the modal and physical coordinates of the system.

Centrifugal pendulum vibration absorbers (CPVA) are used in the automobile industry to reduce the vibrations of the transmission system. These passive devices are made of several masses oscillating along a given trajectory relative to the rotor. In this paper, the dynamic stability of a new class of CPVA is investigated. The particularity of this new class is that masses now admit a
significant rotation motion relative to the rotor, in addition to the traditional translation motion. The efficiency of such devices is optimal for a perfect synchronous motion of the oscillating masses. However, masses unison can be broken for the benefit of energy localisation on a given absorber, leading to a loss of mitigation performances. To assess the stability of such devices,
a dynamical model based on an analytic perturbation method is established. The aim of this model is to predict analytically localisation and jumps of the response. The validity of the model is confirmed through a comparison with both a numerical resolution of the system’s dynamics and an experimental study.

On the frequency response computation of geometrically nonlinear flat structures using reduced-order finite element models
GIVOIS, Arthur; GROLET, Aurélien; THOMAS, Olivier; DEÜ, Jean-François
This paper presents a general methodology to compute nonlinear frequency responses of flat structures subjected to large amplitude transverse vibrations, within a finite element context. A reduced-order model (ROM)is obtained by an expansion onto the eigenmode basis of the associated linearized problem, including transverse and in-plane modes. The coefficients of the nonlinear terms of the ROM are computed thanks to a non-intrusive method, using any existing nonlinear finite element code. The direct comparison to analytical models of beams and plates proves that a lot of coefficients can be neglected and that the in-plane motion can be condensed to the transverse motion, thus giving generic rules to simplify theROM. Then, a continuation technique, based on an asymptotic numerical method and the harmonic balance method, is used to compute the frequency response in free (nonlinear mode computation) or harmonically forced vibrations. The whole procedure is tested on a straight beam, a clamped circular plate and a free perforated plate for which some nonlinear modes are computed, including internal resonances. The convergence with harmonic numbers and oscillators is investigated. It shows that keeping a few of them is sufficient in a range of displacements corresponding to the order of the structure’s thickness, with a complexity of the simulated nonlinear phenomena that increase very fast with the number of harmonics and oscillators.
