Abstract:

The research objectives of this project were to study and resolve some of the daunting problems that hinder the development of reliable general-purpose computer simulation programs, which are capable of reflecting precisely the dynamic behavior of distributed nonlinear systems, spanning the range from large joint-dominated space structures, to intricate electro-mechanical systems, to MEMS, as well as civil infrastructure systems, by conducting a comprehensive analytical and experimental study to investigate an important subset of the challenging issues.
