The constitutive behavior of mechanical joints is largely responsible for the energy dissipation and vibration damping in weapons systems. For reasons arising from the dramatically different length scales associated with those dissipative mechanisms and the length scales characteristic of the overall structure, this physics cannot be captured adequately through direct simulation of the contact mechanics within a structural dynamics analysis. The only practical method for accommodating thedoi:10.2172/809623 fatcat:oqxyd4tllfdexi2ncstq6hev5i
