Paper Abstract

Vibration analysis of structures with uncertainty is challenging for a variety of reasons. In addition to the difficulty in quantifying uncertainties in the finite element model, analyzing a model with known uncertainties is generally computationally costly, especially for a system with large number of degrees of freedom. This paper explores incorporating uncertainty analysis into one typical order-reduction technique, the component mode synthesis (CMS) method. We first provide a derivation of the general approximation formula for the free interface CMS method, followed by a Monte Carlo sampling-based procedure directly utilizing the reduced-order model. Through numerical analysis, this paper demonstrates the feasibility and numerical accuracy of uncertainty analysis of periodic structures using CMS-based reduced order modeling.
