Abstract

The concept of asynchronicity in dynamical systems is not unique. In fact, one finds in the literature several examples where oscillations are called asynchronous, in different scenarios, hindering the definition of a general description of the phenomenon. Regarding modal vibration analisys, some works suggest that asynchronicity could be related to phase differences between generalised displacements and velocities in non-linear systems. However, recent publications show that asynchronous vibration modes are possible even in simpler linear systems, with few degrees-of-freedom (d.o.f.), where asynchronicity is seen under the perspective of localisation, that is, when part of the structure remains at rest during a modal oscillation. In this respect, the "Study of asynchronous modal oscillations in pre-tensioned heavy-chains" proposes to analyse the asynchronicity phenomenon through the localisation in a number of models: low-hierarchy ones (bar-models with three-d.o.f.), medium-hierarchy ones (bar-models with many d.o.f.) and high-hierarchy ones (cylindrical shells). Preliminary results show that asynchronous vibration modes are possible in the two first classes of models, provided the mechanical-geometric properties of the strucure are properly chosen. The discovery of asynchronous modes in higher hierarchy models, besides being a step forward to the definition of a general concept of asynchronicity, will be very important in practical terms. It is believed that the domain of the asynchronicity phenomenon in complex structures will allow, for example: to project structures wchich are safer against earthquakes and impacts (e.g.: nuclear plants, surgery rooms, brigdes, high buildings etc), reducing or even eliminating the necessity of expensive vibration control devices; to harvest electric energy from the concentration of kinetic energy in part of a system; optimise the signal amplification in microsensors.
