Abstract

We introduce a novel type of the nonlinear energy sink (NES) designed as an eccentric mass rotating within a horizontal plane. The gravity is not a factor here, therefore such a rotator has no eigenfrequency and can inertially couple and resonate with any mode of the primary system. The dynamics of the system consisting of a primary linear oscillator and the eccentric rotator is rich beyond expectations and features multiple resonances and chaotic modes. A numerical study shows that the system, when subject to high impulsive loads, inevitably enters a 1:1 resonance that enables highly efficient targeted energy transfer from the primary mass to the NES. The results of an experimental investigation are in good agreement with the analytical and numerical estimates.
