Nonlinear Dissipative Forces

  • Iosif VulfsonEmail author
Part of the Foundations of Engineering Mechanics book series (FOUNDATIONS)


This chapter presents methods of equivalent linearization of nonlinear dissipative forces with polyharmonical vibrations on the basis of the limited information obtained experimentally with monoharmonical excitation. The material is of general engineering interest and applicability and is not limited cyclic machines.
