Vibrational behavior of harmonically excited MDOF oscillators subjected to multiple contact constraints is investigated in this paper using the combination of the Newmark integration scheme and the Linear complementarity problem (LCP) formulation. An oscillator with gap-activated non-smooth spring constraints exhibits various complex behavior such as sub-harmonic resonances, bifurcations and chaos, which are effectively predicted using the proposed method. Numerical results were obtained and presented for SDOF and 5-DOF systems with frequency and stiffness parameters varying in wide ranges to validate the Newmark-LCP method and to demonstrate its effectiveness in dealing with MDOF systems with multiple contact constraints.
