Forum II: Non-linear vibration and noise

Non-linear vibration and noise problems arising due to non-linear elastic and dissipation/friction elements, finite amplitudes and material properties continue to fascinate and challenge researchers and practitioners. It is the purpose of this forum to provide three intellectually stimulating lectures ranging from non-linear modes and associated spectral contents, friction-induced sound radiation from brakes, and energy harvesting using bi-stable system. Topics of discussion may include recent experimental and computational developments, needs of vibro-acoustics community, vibration and acoustic design using intentionally non-linear concepts and the like.

Confirmed keynote speakers:

Prof. Gaetan Kerschen,

University of Liège, Belgium.


Gaëtan Kerschen completed his Ph.D. degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Liège in Belgium in 2003. In 2003 and 2004, he was a visiting postdoctoral fellow at National Technical University of Athens and at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Since 2007, he has been a faculty member at the University of Liège, where he is a professor in the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering. His expertise is primarily in the area of nonlinear structural dynamics, and his research contributions address both the computational and experimental aspects of nonlinear vibration. He is the recipient of two European Research Council (ERC) grants, namely an ERC Starting Grant and an ERC Proof of Concept Grant, and of the 2017 Belgian Francqui Chair at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. He is the co-founder of NOLISYS, a startup company which provides solutions and software for nonlinear vibrating systems.

 Topic: Resonances of nonlinear mechanical systems: a nonlinear normal mode perspective

Abstract: The concept of resonance is central in structural dynamics, because the maximum amplitude at which a system or a product vibrates occurs at resonance frequencies. Unlike linear systems, nonlinear systems can exhibit different types of resonances including fundamental, internal and isolated resonances. In this presentation, we show how the nonlinear normal mode (NNM) theory can be exploited for a thorough understanding of the impact of nonlinearity on system dynamics. Both the numerical computation of NNMs and their identification from experimental data are discussed.
