An enhanced parametric nonlinear reduced order model for imperfect structures using Neumann expansion

by   Jacopo Marconi, et al.

We present an enhanced version of the parametric nonlinear reduced order model for shape imperfections in structural dynamics we studied in a previous work [1]. The model is computed intrusively and with no training using information about the nominal geometry of the structure and some user-defined displacement fields representing shape defects, i.e. small deviations from the nominal geometry parametrized by their respective amplitudes. The linear superposition of these artificial displacements describe the defected geometry and can be embedded in the strain formulation in such a way that, in the end, nonlinear internal elastic forces can be expressed as a polynomial function of both these defect fields and the actual displacement field. This way, a tensorial representation of the internal forces can be obtained and, owning the reduction in size of the model given by a Galerkin projection, high simulation speed-ups can be achieved. We show that by adopting a rigorous deformation framework we are able to achieve better accuracy as compared to the previous work. In particular, exploiting Neumann expansion in the definition of the Green-Lagrange strain tensor, we show that our previous model is a lower order approximation with respect to the one we present now. Two numerical examples of a clamped beam and a MEMS gyroscope finally demonstrate the benefits of the method in terms of speed and increased accuracy.
