Gyroscopic Stabilization of Indefinite Damped Systems

    Research output: Contribution to journalConference articleResearchpeer-review


    Modelling of mechanical systems with sliding bearings, or with dry friction, can lead to linear systems with an indefinite damping matrix. We ask under what conditions such a system is unstable (the indefiniteness of the damping matrix is not enough) and under what conditions we can stabilize the system by adding a gyroscopic term.
