      Modelling and Simulation of Bolted Joints under Harmonic Excitation 

      Oldfield, M.; Ouyang, H.; Mottershead, J. E.; Kyprianou, Andreas (2003)
      Bolted metal joints under harmonic loading exhibit hysteretic behaviour. This is the major source of damping in frame structures with bolted joints, since the material damping of these structures is very small. In this ...
