Languages of publication
In this work, the efficiency of differential transformation method to the solutions of large amplitude nonlinear oscillatory systems is further established. Two cases of oscillation systems, nonlinear plane pendulum and pendulum in a rotating plane are considered. Without any linearization, discretization or series expansion of the sine and cosine of the angular displacement in the nonlinear models of the systems, the differential transformation method with Padé approximant is used to provide analytical solutions to the nonlinear problems. Also, the increased predictive power and the high level of accuracy of the differential transformation method over the previous methods are presented. The extreme accuracy and validity of the analytical solutions obtained by the differential transformation method are shown through comparison of the results of the solution with the corresponding numerical solutions obtained by fourth-fifth-order Runge-Kutta method. Also, with the aid of the analytical solutions, parametric studies were carried to study the impacts of the model parameters on the dynamic behavior of the large-amplitude nonlinear oscillation system. The method avoids any numerical complexity and it is very simple, suitable and useful as a mathematical tool for dealing the nonlinear problems.
