Energy loss in systems of stacked rocking bodies

Abstract:

Free-standing bodies, which rock in response to dynamic base excitations, can be found in a wide range of applications. There are many instances, for example a museum artifact seated on a support pedestal, where both the object and its support are free-standing, resulting in a dynamic system where both bodies can rock with respect to their contact interfaces. This paper analyzes the rich dynamics of systems of two stacked rocking bodies. It focuses on the location of the resultant impulses be...
