Implementation of the harmonic balance method in MATLAB

MATLAB

1

The Harmonic Balance method is an advanced numerical technique for analysing the oscillatory response of nonlinear dynamics systems. During my PhD I wanted to apply this method to efficiently compute the response of rotor-bearing systems, but there weren’t any freely available libraries. I therefore wrote my own, making this technique available to all. The implementation is completely generic so can be applied to many domains, ranging from life sciences to engineering problems.
