Component mode analysis of nonlinear, nonconservative systems


Journal Article

In this paper a method for attacking coupled linear-nonlinear problems is developed. This method allows one to express the equations of motion with a number of equations proportional to the number of nonlinear constraints on the system rather than to the number of linear modes of the system. Both steady state and transient solutions are investigated for a system possessing cubic nonlinearities. © 1983 by ASME.
