J. Appl. Mech 80(4), 041027 (May 23, 2013) (8 pages) Paper No: JAM-12-1157; doi: 10.1115/1.4023021 History: Received April 15, 2012; Revised November 07, 2012; Accepted November 19, 2012

For the frequency response analysis of the structural-acoustic system with interval parameters, a modified interval perturbation finite element method (MIPFEM) is proposed. In the proposed method, the interval dynamic equilibrium equation of the uncertain structural-acoustic system is established. The interval structural-acoustic dynamic stiffness matrix and the interval force vector are expanded by using the first-order Taylor series; the inversion of the invertible interval structural-acoustic dynamic stiffness matrix is approximated by employing a modified approximate interval-value Sherman–Morrison–Woodbury formula. The proposed method is implemented at an element-by-element level in the finite element framework. Numerical results on a shell structural-acoustic system with interval parameters verify the accuracy and efficiency of the proposed method.
