“Model Reduction of non-linear Dynamic Models: a Path in the Jungle ”
By Daniel Rixen
Chair of Applied Mechanics Faculty of Mechanical Engineering
The Technical University of Munich, Germany
Model Reduction techniques for linear structures have been developed since the 60ies and can be considered as fairly mature and established. For non-linear models however, reduction approaches are much more recent: several ideas have been proposed and it is hard to keep track of all the different concepts published. It is a jungle! In this presentation we try to give a structured overview of the different techniques that are currently used or under investigation, starting from the well-known linear reduction techniques and explaining how they can be extended to non-linear systems. Some examples of recent results obtained on engineering structures will be discussed.
Daniel Rixen received his Doctorate from the University of Liège (Belgium) in 1997, then spent two years at the Center for Aerospace Structures of the University of Colorado. From 2000-2012, he was head of the chair for Engineering Dynamics at the Technical University of Delft (The Netherlands) and since 2012 he directs the chair for Applied Mechanics of the Technical University of Munich (Germany). He authored and co-authored several books and articles on the topics of numerical modeling for structural and multiphysical systems, experimental dynamics and mechatronics.
