Vibro-Impact processes in systems with single degree of freedom

  • Paul Dirac
Part of the Foundations of Engineering Mechanics book series (FOUNDATIONS)


Using the methods of harmonic linearisation described in §7, we will continue by analysing forced vibration of a linear oscillator with rigid stops, which will occasionally be referred to as impact oscillators later on. We will analyse the basis of using the method of harmonic force and motion linearisation, and compare the results with the exact solutions obtained in §2 to §3. We will begin by studying the non-symmetrical system (Fig. 2.1, a), assuming as before, that the stop is arranged with gap (interference) A relative to the equilibrium condition of the system without stop.
