A generalized complex eigenvector method for dynamic analysis of heterogeneous viscoelastic structures. (English) Zbl 1017.74026
Summary: We describe a generalized complex eigenvector method which can be used for linear dynamic analysis of viscoelastic structures. Here the dynamic analysis is understood as transient analysis and frequency response analysis. The generalized complex eigenvector method is based on finite element discretization of structures on the approximation of viscoelastic properties by differential operators, and on mode superposition technique. Coefficients of differential operator are defined from the condition of best matching of complex characteristics of viscoelastic material and complex characteristics of differential operator in a pre-set frequency range. Advantage of this method is that it allows to take into account the real changes of viscoelastic properties in frequency range. Also, the generalized complex eigenvector method allows to describe viscoelastic properties by two functions: complex Young’s modulus, and complex Poisson’s ratio. The method is verified by comparing its results with solutions obtained by complex modulus method. The effect of viscoelastic Poisson’s ratio on transient and frequency responses of structures is demonstrated.
