One important application is the effect of cracks in beams and shafts on the system dynamics. There is considerable interest in predicting the response of failed shafts and also detecting the presence of a crack. The usual model represents the crack as piece wise linear and switches between two stiffness matrices depending on whether the crack is open or closed.
