Abstract

The present paper investigates the dynamics of a real-life spacecraft structure possessing a strongly nonlinear component with multiple mechanical stops. A full-scale finite element model is built for gaining additional insight into the nonlinear dynamics that was observed experimentally in a companion paper [NRK14]. To this end, advanced techniques and theoretical concepts such as numerical continuation and nonlinear normal modes are exploited.
