    Abstract

    Aircraft skin panels may often be subjected to high levels of acoustic pressure loading in flight that may lead to acoustic fatigue. In some cases, the in-plane restraint provided by the panel boundaries will introduce a stiffening non-linearity when the panel deforms. The Non-Linear Modal method (NLMOD) allows the efficient prediction of the kinematic and stress response of such panels via a reduced order approach that converts FE results into a model based in linear modal space, with additional terms included to represent the non-linear behaviour. In this paper, the development of a simple experimental clamped panel is presented, together with a Finite Element model of the same structure. The panel is exposed to fairly high-level acoustic excitation in a Progressive Wave Tube (PWT) and the resulting responses are compared to those predicted using the identified non-linear modal model.
