This paper deals with an approach to study nonlinear chatter analysis, which is based on the synthesis of linear theory for different turning conditions. Mainly, contact nonlinearities play a crucial role in the behavior of the machine tool and the stability of turning operation. However, the analysis of nonlinear systems is challenging because nonlinear system analyzes are often limited to a linearized solution, which may be insufficient to reveal the stability lobe diagram. The presented study proposes a theoretical approach which is based on a synthesis of linearization in the operating point. This approach provides several solutions of stability lobe diagrams which are strongly depending on the loading conditions of the nonlinear system and all solutions are integrated to the final stability lobe diagram. The presented method is applied to a simplified 2D structure between two supports with nonlinear contact stiffness. Resulted analysis of the lobe diagram are compared with results of the time-domine simulations and it shows a good match. This paper shows that the presented approach offers an effective solution for refining the stability estimate for nonlinear mechanical systems.
