J. Comput. Nonlinear Dynam 13(1), 014502 (Oct 09, 2017) (5 pages) Paper No: CND-16-1627; doi: 10.1115/1.4037594 History: Received December 18, 2016; Revised August 02, 2017

The forced vibration of gyroscopic continua is investigated by taking the pipes conveying fluid as an example. The nonlinear normal modes and a numerical iterative approach are used to perform numerical response analysis. The nonlinear nonautonomous governing equations are transformed into a set of pseudo-autonomous ones by using the harmonic balance method. Based on the pseudo-autonomous system, the nonlinear normal modes are constructed by the invariant manifold method on the state space and substituted back into the original discrete equations. By repeating the above mentioned steps, the dynamic responses can be numerically obtained asymptotically using such iterative approach. Quadrature phase difference between the general coordinates is verified for the gyroscopic system and traveling waves instead of standing waves are found in the time-domain complex modal analysis.
