Article
Some bowed string instruments such as cello or viola are prone to a parasite phenomenon called the wolf tone that gives rise to an undesired warbling sound. It is now accepted that this phenomenon is mainly due to an interaction between a resonance of the body and the motion of the string. A simple model of bowed string instrument consisting of a l...

This work addresses the development of a nonlinear absorber based on the concept of a Nonlinear Energy Sink (NES) under different multi-stable configurations. The potential energy of the system can be written under a potential that possesses two or more stable equilibrium positions separated by saddle points. The study of the dynamics at different...
Article
The linear vibration absorber is a widely-used vibration mitigation device. However, when the absorber is tuned according to Den Hartog’s equal-peak method, the resulting narrow bandwidth may decrease its effectiveness, especially when the host structure is uncertain or in the presence of environmental variability. In this paper, a new tuning strat...

In this paper, the dynamics of a system composed of a harmonically forced single-degree-of-freedom linear oscillator coupled to a vibro-impact nonlinear energy sink (VI-NES) is experimentally investigated. The mass ratio between the VI-NES and the primary system is about \(1\%\). Depending on the external force’s amplitude and frequency, either a s...
Article
A linear oscillator (LO) coupled with two vibro-impact (VI) nonlinear energy sinks (NES) in parallel is studied under periodic and transient excitations, respectively. The objective is to study response regimes and to compare their efficiency of vibration control. Through the analytical study with multiple scales method, two slow invariant manifold...
Chapter
The performance of a linear tuned vibration absorber (LTVA) and a nonlinear energy sink (NES) for the vibrationcert mitigation of an unain linear primary system is investigated. An analytic tuning rule for the LTVA when the primary system contains uncertainty is derived. The behavior of the linear system coupled to the NES is analyzed theoretically...
Chapter
The objective of the paper is to obtain the frequency response curves of nonlinear mechanical systems from broadband testing. The proposed approach consists in coupling an identification method with a continuation method. Specifically, the frequency-domain nonlinear subspace identification (FNSI) method is first used to derive an experimental model...

In helicopter with hinged rotor, an unstable dynamic phenomenon known as ground resonance may occur, leading to the total destruction of the aircraft. The prediction of the stability boundary has been addressed for various helicopter configurations by using different methods. However, in order to develop control strategies for this phenomenon, the...

Recently, it has been demonstrated that a vibro-impact type nonlinear energy sink (VI-NES) can be used efficiently to mitigate vibration of a linear oscillator (LO) under transient loading. The objective of this paper is to investigate theoretically and experimentally the potential of a VI-NES to mitigate vibrations of an LO subjected to a harmonic...

In this paper, the dynamic response of a harmonically forced linear oscillator (LO) strongly coupled to a nonlinear energy sink (NES) is investigated both theoretically and experimentally. The system studied comprises an LO with an embedded, purely cubic NES. The behavior of the system is analyzed in the vicinity of 1 : 1 resonance. The complexific...

La présentation porte sur le contrôle passif des vibrations par pompage énergétique. Plus particulièrement lorsque la structure à protéger est soumise à une excitation harmonique. Le pompage énergétique est défini comme le tranfert unidirectionnel de l'energie vibratoire d'une structure principale vers un oscillateur auxiliaire es- sentiellement no...

This paper investigate the different response regimes of a cutting tool on a lathe strongly coupled to a nonlinear energy sink. The equations of motion are analysed via the method of multiple scales. Condition of elimination of secular terms permit to derive equation of the slow invariant manifold (SIM) and the behavior of the system has been expla...

A dynamical modeling of spindle with Active Magnetic Bearing (AMB) is presented. All the required parameters are included in the model for stability analysis. The original map of stability is generated by Time Domain Simulation. The major importance of forced vibrations is highlighted for a spindle with AMB. Milling test are used to quickly evaluat...
Conference Paper
In the present works, we examine experimentally and theoretically the dynamic behavior of linear oscillator strongly coupled to a nonlinear energy sink under external periodic forcing. The nonlinear oscillator has a nonlinear restoring force realized geometrically with two linear springs that extend axially and are free to rotate. Hence, the force-...
