In this paper we discuss the experimental identification of a nonlinear vibrating mechanical system. The system under test incorporated several spring and damping related nonlinearities. Indeed, in this paper we use data from a real laboratory device thus increasing the confidence in the proposed...
In this paper a new crack localization algorithm based on a mathematical model describing the lateral vibration of a rotating cracked Timoshenko beam is proposed. The Lagrange equation and the assumed mode method are used to derive the model. The localization algorithm utilizes the variation in a...
