Analytic study of linear and nonlinear mode localization

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The localization of the normal modes of weakly coupled vibrating systems is examined with a new exact, analytical method. Both linear and nonlinear systems are considered and the mode localization is examined by means of “balancing diagrams. ” This study complements previous studies of the author and co-workers on investigating mode localization in systems with nonlinear stiffness elements.
