Abstract. An efficient method, namely fixed interface mode synthesis-interval factor method (FIMS-IFM), is proposed to calculate the natural frequency of structure considering elastic joint with interval uncertainty. In this proposed method, the interval uncertain elastic joint is treated as spatial beam element with interval uncertain material parameters. Additionally, both the proposed method and Monte-Carlo simulation method are used to calculate the natural frequency of a specially designed structure with interval uncertain elastic joint. A meaningful conclusion can be acquired via comparing the calculation results of the two methods that, FIMS-IFM is correct and high-efficiency.
Keywords: interval uncertainty, elastic joint, natural frequency, fixed interface mode synthesis method, interval factor method.
