Experimental excitation and propagation of nonlinear localized oscillations in an air-levitation-type coupled oscillator array
Nonlinear Theory and Its Applications IEICE
A mechanical apparatus of coupled oscillator chains which are levitated on a track by air has been constructed with designing anew nonlinear springs. By use of the apparatus, excitation of mobile type of intrinsic localized modes has been demonstrated with driving sinusoidally at one end of the chains. The apparatus consists of twenty identical oscillators, nonlinear springs, a long and straight air track with a blower at one end and a driver unit for forcing the chains. The oscillators aredoi:10.1587/nolta.8.146 fatcat:rt4ufhmjynhfjmeqdt3vyutllu
