By Ivana Kovacic,Michael J. Brennan

The Duffing Equation: Nonlinear Oscillators and their Behaviour brings jointly the result of a wealth of disseminated examine literature at the Duffing equation, a key engineering version with an unlimited variety of functions in technological know-how and engineering, summarizing the findings of this learn. each one bankruptcy is written by means of a professional contributor within the box of nonlinear dynamics and addresses a distinct kind of the equation, bearing on it to numerous oscillatory difficulties and obviously linking the matter with the maths that describe it. The editors and the individuals clarify the mathematical recommendations required to check nonlinear dynamics, supporting the reader with little mathematical heritage to appreciate the text.

The Duffing Equation offers a reference textual content for postgraduate and scholars and researchers of mechanical engineering and vibration / nonlinear dynamics in addition to a great tool for practicing mechanical engineers.

  • Includes a bankruptcy dedicated to old history on Georg Duffing and the equation that was once named after him.
  • Includes a bankruptcy exclusively dedicated to useful examples of structures whose dynamic behaviour is defined by way of the Duffing equation.
  • Contains a entire therapy of a number of the varieties of the Duffing equation.
  • Uses experimental, analytical and numerical equipment in addition to techniques of nonlinear dynamics to regard the actual structures in a unified way.
