Non-Linear Normal Modes in Dynamics – Discrete Systems
J. Náprstek, C. Fischer
pages 208 - 209, full text

The aim of the paper is to inform about main features of Non-linear Normal Modes (NNM) as a powerful tool for investigation of multi-degree of freedom (MDOF) dynamic systems. In particular, it is shown how this concept can be used to investigate forced resonances of non-linear symmetric systems including non-linear localization of vibrational energy. NNMs can provide a valuable tool for understanding essentially non-linear dynamic phenomena having no counterparts in linear theory and which do not enable analysis using linearized procedures. Discrete MDOF systems are considered in this study. A couple of possible approaches are outlined together with some demonstrations of numerical results.
