Transient in 2-DOF Nonlinear Systems

An investigation of transient is important in engineering, in particular, in problem of absorption. Over the past years different new devices have been used for the vibration absorption and for the reduction of the transient response of structures [1–4]. It seems interesting to study nonlinear passive absorbers for this reduction.

In presented paper the transient in a system containing a linear oscillator, linearly coupled to an essentially nonlinear attachment with a comparatively small mass, is considered. A damping is taken into account. It is assumed that some initial excitation implies vibrations of the linear oscillator.
