Structural dynamics models with localized nonlinearities can be reduced using Hurty/Craig-Bampton component mode synthesis methods. The interior degrees-of-freedom of the linear subcomponents are reduced with a set of dynamic fixed-interface modes while the static constraint modes preserve the physical coordinates at which the nonlinear restoring forces are applied. For finite element models with a highly refined mesh at the boundary, a secondary modal analysis can be performed to reduce the interface down to a truncated set of local-level characteristic constraint modes. In this research, the cost savings and accuracy of the interface reduction technique are evaluated on a simple example problem involving two elastic blocks coming into contact.
