Detecting the position of non-linear component in periodic\ud structures from the system responses to dual sinusoidal excitations\ud

By Z.K. Peng and Z.Q. Lang


Based on the Nonlinear Output Frequency Response Functions (NOFRFs), a novel method is developed to detect the position of nonlinear components in periodic structures. The detection procedure requires exciting the nonlinear systems twice using two sinusoidal inputs separately. The frequencies of the two inputs are different; one frequency is twice as high as the other one. The validity of this method is demonstrated by numerical studies. Since the position of a nonlinear component often corresponds to the location of defect in periodic structures, this new method is of great practical significance in fault diagnosis for mechanical and structural systems
