Numerical simulation of oscillations of a nonlinear mechanical system with a spring-loaded viscous friction damper

By Viktor Nekhaev, Viktor Nikolaev and Marina Safronova


The dynamics of a mechanical system consisting of a parallel-connected main elastic element, an external disturbance compensator having a nonlinear force characteristic, and a viscous friction damper sprung by a linear spring are studied. The resulting system of differential equations describing the behavior of the system has one and a half degrees of freedom and has specific properties depending on the ratio of stiffness of the main spring and the spring suspension of a viscous friction damper. It is established that a single nonlinear system with one and a half degrees of freedom has either one or two harmonics. In the general solution of the system of differential equations, there are always two harmonics in the above-resonance zone, one of which is always equal to the disturbance frequency, and the second one is sufficiently close to the frequency k0. In the linear conservative case and the absence of suspension of the viscous friction damper, the natural frequency of the displacement of the system k0 =14.046 s-1
