The study considers the application of finite element modeling, combined with numerical solutions of governing stochastic differential equations, to analyze instrumented nonlinear moving vehicle structure systems. The focus of the study is on achieving computational efficiency by deploying, within a single modeling framework, three substructuring schemes with different methodological moorings. The schemes considered include spatial substructuring schemes (involving free-interface coupling methods), a spatial mesh partitioning scheme for governing stochastic differential equations (involving the use of a predictor corrector method with implicit integration schemes for linear regions and explicit schemes for local nonlinear regions), and application of the Rao-Blackwellization scheme (which permits the use of Kalman's filtering for linear substructures and Monte Carlo filters for nonlinear substructures). The main effort in this work is expended on combining these schemes with provisions for interfacing of the substructures by taking into account the relative motion of the vehicle and the supporting structure. The problem is formulated with reference to an archetypal beam and multi-degrees of freedom moving oscillator with spatially localized nonlinear characteristics. The study takes into account imperfections in mathematical modeling, guide way unevenness, and measurement noise. The numerical results demonstrate notable reduction in computational effort achieved on account of introduction of the substructuring schemes. (C) 2016 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
