Spatio-Temporal Dynamics of Chain of Coupled Impact Pendulums
Languages of publication
A chain of N, one-dimensional, impact pendulums is investigated using numerical solutions of equations of motion. Ranges of periodic, mixed and chaotic motion are found using spatio-temporal diagrams. A correlation function and power spectrum density functions are calculated for these digitized diagrams. Influence of the coupling strength k and the number of pendulums N on the dynamics of the system is discussed.
