Nonlinear targeted energy transfer and its application to vibration mitigation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

We discuss the concept of passive nonlinear targeted energy transfer (TET) and its application to vibration mitigation. By TET we denote the one-way passive transfer of vibration energy from a primary system to an attached lightweight attachment (termed nonlinear energy sink — NES), where this energy is locally confined and dissipated without spreading back to the primary system. Applications of the concept of TET to passive vibration mitigation of discrete and continuous oscillators are discussed.
