An Alternating Frequency/Time Domain Method for Calculating the Steady-State Response of Nonlinear Dynamic Systems

Abstract : A method is proposed for analyzing the steady-state response of nonlinear dynamic systems. The method iterates to obtain the discrete Fourier transform of the system response, returning to the time domain at each iteration to take advantage of the ease in evaluating nonlinearities there-rather than analytically describing the nonlinear terms in the frequency domain. The updated estimates of the nonlinear terms are transformed back into the frequency domain in order to continue iterating on the frequency spectrum of the steady-state response. The method is demonstrated by solving a problem with friction damping in which the excitation has multiple discrete frequencies.
