Time integration of finite element models with nonlinear frequency dependencies

by   Elke Deckers, et al.

The analysis of sound and vibrations is often performed in the frequency domain, implying the assumption of steady-state behaviour and time-harmonic excitation. External excitations, however, may be transient rather than time-harmonic, requiring time-domain analysis. Some material properties, e.g.often used to represent for damping treatments, are still described in the frequency domain, which complicates simulation in time. In this paper, we present a method for the linearization of finite element models with nonlinear frequency dependencies. The linearization relies on the rational approximation of the finite element matrices by the AAA method. We introduce the Extended AAA method, which is classical AAA combined with a degree two polynomial term to capture the second order behaviour of the models. A filtering step is added for removing unstable poles.
