Reduced order surrogate modeling technique for linear dynamic systems
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2018
The availability of reduced order models can greatly decrease the computational costs needed for modeling, identification and design of real-world structural systems. However, since these systems are usually employed with some uncertain parameters, the approximant must provide a good accuracy for a range of stochastic parameters variations. The derivation of such reduced order models are addressed in this paper. The proposed method consists of a polynomial chaos expansion (PCE)-based state-space model together with a PCE-based modal dominancy analysis to reduce the model order. To solve the issue of spatial aliasing during mode tracking step, a new correlation metric is utilized. The performance of the presented method is validated through four illustrative benchmarks: a simple mass-spring system with four Degrees Of Freedom (DOF), a 2-DOF system exhibiting a mode veering phenomenon, a 6-DOF system with large parameter space and a cantilever Timoshenko beam resembling large-scale systems.
