Experience and Simulation in Dynamic Systems with Discontinuities
Non-smooth nonlinearity is abundant in nature being usually related to either the friction phenomenon or the discontinuous characteristics as intermittent contacts of some system components. Non-smooth systems appear in many kinds of engineering systems and also in everyday life. Examples may be mentioned by the stick-slip oscillations of a violin string or grating brakes . Some related phenomena as chatter and squeal causes serious problems in many industrial applications .
