Abstract: This paper presents a method for the vibration of a beam with a breathing crack under harmonic excitation. The infinitely thin crack is characterised by a parameter that takes into account the shape and the depth of the crack. The closed- and open-crack states are both modelled by a modal approach: two sets of equations of motion cast in the modal coordinates of their individual mode shapes. The state change (from closed to open or vice versa) involves the calculation of the modal coordinates associated with…
