A detailed study of the low-frequency periodic beliavior of a dry friction oscillator


Journal Article

This work examines the periodic stopping motion present in the low-frequency response of a dry friction oscillator, excited harmonically through a base spring. Piecewise linear solution methods are used to compare two simple friction models, to consider the effects of viscous damping, and.to illustrate stability considerations. Seeding phenomena, particularly at degenerate frequency ratios, are noted. Finally, experimental results provide a means to assess the effectiveness of the simple friction models in predicting observed motion. © 1997 ASME.
