Effect of time delay on vibroimpact dynamics in a forced Hertzian contact oscillator
Laboratory of Mechanics, University Hassan II-Casablanca, Morocco
Vibroimpact dynamics of a forced single-sided Hertzian contact oscillator are typically initiated by jumps phenomena near resonances. It was shown that high-frequency excitations can be used to shift the threshold of such vibroimpacts toward higher or lower frequencies of the basic excitation depending on the type of the high-frequency excitation. These excitations not only produce a shift, but also soften the system behavior. The present paper investigates the effect of time delay state feedback on the threshold of vibroimpact dynamics of a forced Hertzian contact oscillator near the primary resonance. It is shown that for certain combinations of the gain parameters of delay state feedback, the jumps disappear leading the system to be maintained in contact when the excitation frequency sweeps through the resonance.
