Forced vibration control of an axially moving beam with an attached nonlinear energy sink
This paper investigates a highly efficient and promising control method for forced vibration control of an axially moving beam with an attached nonlinear energy sink (NES). Because of the axial velocity, external force and external excitation frequency, the beam undergoes a high-amplitude vibration. The Galerkin method is applied to discretize the dynamic equations of the beam—NES system. The steady-state responses of the beams with an attached NES and with nothing attached are acquired by numerical simulation. Furthermore, the fast Fourier transform (FFT) is applied to get the amplitude—frequency responses. From the perspective of frequency domain analysis, it is explained that the NES has little effect on the natural frequency of the beam. Results confirm that NES has a great potential to control the excessive vibration.
