Rising phenomena and the multi-sliding bifurcation in a two-degree of freedom impact oscillator
We consider the rising phenomena which occur in sticking solutions of a two-degree of freedom impact oscillator. We describe a mathematical formulation for modelling such a systems during both free flight and during sticking solutions for each of the masses in the syste... View more
