Dynamics of Joints

1-Day Practical Workshop on Wednesday, 29th March

*****

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED AS THE WORKSHOP HAS REACHED FULL CAPACITY. 

IF YOU ARE STILL INTERESTED IN ATTENDING, PLEASE EMAIL JO.DAVENPORT@NAFEMS.ORG TO BE PUT ON THE STANDBY LIST.


*****

Structures are built-up from components connected by joints. For a structure with a vibration duty there are many uncertainties:

  • Can static joint design be used for dynamic design?
  • What is the dynamic stiffness of a joint?
  • How much damping is provided by a joint?
  • How do you model the dynamics of joints in simulation codes?
  • Can joints be designed to assist structural dynamic?
  • How repeatable and predictable is the behaviour of a joint?
  • Can joints be simplified to reduce weight and complexity?

Research into these issues has received growing attention and some answers are now available. This workshop will introduce you to the problems, the current knowledge, some approaches and some solutions. Help to reduce modelling uncertainty by gaining the current knowledge. 

In the morning there will be talks from leading experts who will describe the current state of knowledge and provide the needed background knowledge.     

Practical Session

In the afternoon you will be able to experiment with various joints. You will apply dynamic loads and see how an instrumented joint responds. You will be able to assemble and disassemble joints and examine the dynamic behaviour.

Who should attend?

  • Engineers who are involved in the simulation of structures with connections.
  • System designers who put together built-up structures.
  • Managers who wish to see how structural vibration is influenced by joints.

The event is open to both members and non-members of NAFEMS.

After attending you will be able to

  • Recognise issues with joints
  • Select a design approach that is suitable for your application
  • Identify configurations that increase uncertainty
