Reduced-Order Modeling, Testing, and Control of Nonlinear Mechanical and Structural Systems

Call for Papers

The Special Issue addresses the general problem of model size reduction for describing nonlinear vibration of structural elements and systems.

The aim is to provide and analyze tools that allow to accurately capture nonlinear dynamic behavior using a minimal number of degrees of freedom.

It involves modeling and control of nonlinear dynamical phenomena in structural systems and other complex multibody mechanisms. Manuscripts in nonlinear dynamics and chaos, nonlinear normal modes (NNM), and advanced control systems are welcome.

The Special Issue will bring together contributions from researchers in different areas of mechanical and structural engineering.

Papers describing original theoretical research as well as new experimental results are desired.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

Nonlinear dynamics
Nonlinear mode interaction
Nonideal systems
Chaotic dynamics
Advanced control systems
Nonlinear normal modes
Energy transfer
Energy harvesting
Authors can submit their manuscripts through the Manuscript Tracking System athttp://mts.hindawi.com/submit/journals/sv/roma/.
