The surrogate system hypothesis for joint mechanics
The main challenges in the design and analysis of jointed structures deal with the prediction of dissipation across bolted interfaces. Since friction is thought to be one of the main mechanisms for this, the current study investigates the utility of frictional parameter identification applied across different structures. Based on recent discoveries, ...
Observations of variability and repeatability in jointed structures
The experimental study of joint mechanics has been limited in its effectiveness due to the high uncertainty associated with assemblies of sub-components. In particular, two categories of uncertainty are variability (the uncertainty in measurements of different, nominally identical parts) and repeatability (the uncertainty in measurements of the same ...
