Vibro-impact processes in systems with multiple degrees of freedom

Part of the Foundations of Engineering Mechanics book series (FOUNDATIONS)


We shall now look at vibro-impact interactions in systems with multiple degrees of freedom, implying either lumped or continuous models. As we showed in §6, using dynamic compliance operators makes it possible to develop uniform equations of motion in both cases which differ only in the actual form of the dynamic compliance. The description of analysis methods for problems of existence and stability of periodic motion in the previous chapter can be extended to the class of system described here. A solution for such problems can often be successfully obtained in the general form with the final formula [39].
