The aeroelastic behavior of a planar prismatic visco-elastic structure, subject to a turbulent wind, flowing orthogonally to its plane, is studied in the nonlinear field. The steady component of wind is responsible for a Hopf bifurcation occurring at a threshold critical value; the turbulent component, which is assumed to be a small harmonic perturbation of the former, is responsible for parametric excitation.

Abstract

The aeroelastic behavior of a planar prismatic visco-elastic structure, subject to a turbulent wind, flowing orthogonally to its plane, is studied in the nonlinear field. The steady component of wind is responsible for a Hopf bifurcation occurring at a threshold critical value; the turbulent component, which is assumed to be a small harmonic perturbation of the former, is responsible for parametric excitation. The interaction between the two bifurcations is studied in a three-dimensional parameter space, made of the two wind amplitudes and the frequency of the turbulence. Aeroelastic forces are computed by the quasi-static theory. A one-D.O.F dynamical system, drawn by a Galerkin projection of the continuous model, is adopted. The multiple scale method is applied, to get a two-dimensional bifurcation equation. A linear stability analysis is carried out to determine the loci of periodic and quasi-periodic bifurcations. Limit cycles and tori are computed by exact, asymptotic, and numerical solutions of the bifurcation equations. Numerical results are obtained for a sample structure, and compared with finite-difference solutions of the original partial differential equation of motion.
