Nonlinear Response of an Oscillator with a Magneto-Rheological Damper Subjected to External Forcing
This paper examines the dynamics of a single degree of freedom nonlinear model, representing a quarter of an automobile with a semi-active, nonlinear suspension. Assuming that the kinematic excitation caused by the road surface profile is harmonic, the principal resonance and frequency entrainment are obtained for regions of the model parameters. Changing the excitation frequency and road profile amplitude we analyze possible chaotic vibrations and bifurcations of the system.
