A 1D chain of coupled oscillators is considered, including the Duffing-type nonlinearity, viscous damping, and kinematic harmonic excitation. The equations of motion are presented in a non-dimensional form. The approximate equations for the vibrational amplitudes and phases are derived by means of the classical averaging method. A simple analysis of the resulting equations allows one to determine the conditions for the two basic synchronous steady-states of the system: the in-phase and anti-phase motions. The relations between the required excitation frequency and the natural frequencies of the abbreviated (linear) system are discussed. The validity of these predictions is examined by a series of numerical experiments. The effect of the model parameters on the rate of synchronization is analyzed. For the purpose of systematic numerical studies, the cross-correlation of time-series is used as a measure of the phase adjustment between particular oscillators. Finally, some essential issues that arise in case of the mechanical system with dry friction are indicated.


创新点:1. 利用时间序列的互相关测量特定振子间的相位蝶,并通过一系列的数值实验来验证理论预测的结果; 2. 给出考虑干摩擦的系统共振的一些简要说明。
方法:1. 采用经典的平均值法进行理论分析;2. 采用MEBDFV求解器计算多自由度系统的数值解。
结论: 1. 利用平均值法确定了两种共振现象:同相状态(低频激励)和反相状态(高频激励);2. 关于同相共振的预测非常琐碎但对多自由度的振子链非常适用;3. 对于反相共振的预测适用于短的振子链;4. 可以通过改变系统的物理参数来提高同步率。
