Abstract

Different strategies for modelling and reducing the effect of uncertainties on the dynamic behaviour of coupled structures are discussed in this paper. in assembled structures, each component satisfies specifications about material properties and dimensional tolerances. Variability of design specifications within the tolerance field may affect the dynamic behaviour of the assembled structure more than that of any individual component substructure. Among modelling strategies, non-predictive techniques such as post-processing of data from a set of randomly assembled structures and analysis of sensitivities to uncertain variables are considered. However, emphasis is placed on a less trivial yet simple strategy such as the use of design of experiments to fit a regression model. Different reduction strategies are considered according to whether small design changes (even revised tolerance allocation) are still possible or not. In the latter case, selective assembly is extended to problems where the performance requirement is not the clearance between two parts, but a prescribed dynamic behaviour.
