Abstract:

Oscillations of weakly nonlinear autonomous multiple degree of freedom dynamical systems are studied. The analysis includes nonlinear effects arising from the potential as well as the kinetic energies of the systems and the systems include elements that produce nonlinear dissipative forces. The method of averaging is applied to a suitably transformed set of equations. In several important cases nonperiodic solutions for arbitrary initial conditions are obtained by quadratures. Author
