Activity: Talks and presentationsConference presentations


The frequency response of a single-degree of freedom vibro-impact oscillator is analysed using Harmonic Linearization, Averaging and Numeric Simulations considering two different impact force models, one given by a piecewise-linear function and other by a high-order polynomial. Experimental validation is carried out using control-based continuation to obtain the experimental frequency response, including its unstable branch.
