College of Mechanical Engineering, Nanjing University of Science and Technology, Nanjing, Jiangsu, 210094, China
This paper evaluates the validity of component mode synthesis (CMS) technique for dynamic response of elastic-plastic structures. A method incorporating elastic-plastic material behaviour and the fixed interface mode synthesis technology is presented. To do this, the incremental governing equations of elastic-plastic transient problem derived from nonlinear finite element theory are linearized in each time step, the tangent stiffness matrix is used to generate the basis vector of transformation matrix. Using the proposed method, the response of a simply supported beam loaded impulsively is examined. The Numerical results indicate that the proposed method is accurate, convergent and more efficient compared with the full order finite element model.
