Original Paper


A variety of nonlinear dynamic responses for a new electro-vibro-impact system is presented, with indication of chaotic behavior. By mathematical modeling of the physical system, an insight is obtained to the global system dynamics. The modeling has established a good correlation with experimental data, and hence can be used as a numerical tool to optimize the system dynamics. In particular, with respect to impact forces and progression rate, may then be achieved with minimal computational cost.
