Single degree of freedom tuneable, nonlinear, dual frequency parametrically excited amplifier – model and experimental rig.

Single degree of freedon system Response

The SDOF amplifier response vs. the pumping frequency is comprised of many frequencies, and the amplitudes’ dominant harmonics are provided below. The dominant frequencies are the natural frequency  and the external force frequency . In the figure, one can see the resemblance between the analytic solution (blue), numerical simulation (orange) and experimental results (yellow).

Multi degree of freedom system

Three degree of freedom tuneable, nonlinear, dual frequency parametrically excited amplifier – model and experimental rig.

Multi degrees of freedom system response

The MDOF amplifier response vs. the pumping frequency is comprised of many frequencies, and the amplitudes’ dominant harmonics are provided below. The dominant frequencies are the external force frequency and the natural frequency  to which the amplifier was tuned. In the figure, one can see the resemblance between the analytic solution (continuous line), numerical simulation (circular data markers) and experimental results (hollow diamond shaped data markers). The solution in the figure is illustrated by the amplitudes on the mass normalized modes, the first mode is shown by blue and purple curves, the second mode by orange and light green curves and the third mode by yellow and light blue.
