Understanding friction induced damping in bolted assemblies through explicit transient simulation
TypeCommunications avec actes
The design of joints is seeing increased interest as one of the ways of controlling damping levels in lighter and more ﬂexible aeronautic structures. Damping induced by joint dissipation has been studied for more than a decade, mostly experimentally due to the difﬁculty of simulating large structures with non-linearities. Experimentally ﬁtted meta-models were thus used for damping estimation at design stage without a possible optimization. The aim of this paper is to demonstrate that damping estimation using local friction models is feasible and that it can be usable for design. The simulation methodology is based on an explicit Newmark time scheme with model reduction and numerical damping that can be compensated for the modes of interest. Practical simulation times counted in minutes are achieved for detailed models. The illustration on a lap-joint shows how simulations can be used to predict the amplitude dependence of modal damping, answer long standing questions such as “does the modeshape change?” or analyze the evolution of pressure ﬁelds during a cycle.
