Dynamique non linéaire d’un assemblage d’oscillateurs : application au contrôle

Abstract : Nonlinear light oscillators can be used for performing vibratory passive control of structures undergoing unacceptable oscillations in terms of comfort and safety. The study of Nonlinear Energy Sinks (NES) has been especially subject to an important research effort since the beginning of the 2000s. Its essential nonlinearity enables it to achieve large-band energy pumping, which is a significant advantage in comparison with classical Tuned Mass Dampers. In this manuscript, nonlinear chains of oscillators coupled to linear systems under harmonic excitation are studied. The main goal is to understand the behavior of the whole system and find evidence of passive control abilities of such chains. First of all, a general analytical methodology is presented and applied to examples where single and multi-degree-of-freedom absorbers with cubic nonlinearities are linked to a linear oscillator. A modification of this approach by considering the chain in the form of a continuous approximation is then proposed. Finally, an experimental device composed of a single storey reduced-scale building coupled to a chain of eight nonlinear oscillators is investigated.
