This paper presents a hybrid Galerkin/perturbation approach based on Radial Basis Functions for the dynamic analysis of mechanical systems affected by randomness both in their parameters and loads. In specialized literature various procedures are nowadays available to evaluate the response statistics of such systems, but sometimes a choice has to be made between simpler methods that could provide unreliable solutions and more complex methods where accurate solutions are provided by means of a heavy computational effort.

In order to keep the number of differential equations to be solved as low as possible, a Karhunen-Lo`eve KL expansion for the excitation is used. As case study a nonlinear single degree of freedom SDOF system with random parameters subjected to a stochastic windtype load is analyzed and discussed in detail; obtained numerical solutions are compared with the results given by Monte Carlo Simulation MCS to provide a validation of the proposed approach. The proposed method could be a valid alternative to the classical procedures as it is able to provide satisfactory approximations of the system response.

Abstract

This paper presents a hybrid Galerkin/perturbation approach based on Radial Basis Functions for the dynamic analysis of mechanical systems affected by randomness both in their parameters and loads. In specialized literature various procedures are nowadays available to evaluate the response statistics of such systems, but sometimes a choice has to be made between simpler methods that could provide unreliable solutions and more complex methods where accurate solutions are provided by means of a heavy computational effort. The proposed method combines a Radial Basis Functions RBF based Galerkin methodwith a perturbation approach for the approximation of the system response. In order to keep the number of differential equations to be solved as low as possible, a Karhunen-Lo`eve KL expansion for the excitation is used. As case study a nonlinear single degree of freedom SDOF system with random parameters subjected to a stochastic windtype load is analyzed and discussed in detail; obtained numerical solutions are compared with the results given by Monte Carlo Simulation MCS to provide a validation of the proposed approach. The proposed method could be a valid alternative to the classical procedures as it is able to provide satisfactory approximations of the system response.
