A mechanical periodic structure in presence of component perturbations can be a seat of a localization of vibration energy. In fact, it is well known that mistuned components have larger response levels than those of perfect components. This results in a localized energy, which can be tapped via harvesting devices. In this study, the dynamic behavior of a quasi-periodic system consisting in weakly connected linear oscillators is investigated. The main objective is to optimize the mistuning parameter, the coupling stiffness and the damping coefficient in order to functionalize the imperfection, which leads to the maximization of the localized vibration energy.
