    • Energy equipartition and frequency distribution in complex attachments 

      Roveri, N.; Carcaterra, A.; Akay, A. (Acoustical Society of America, 2009)
      As reported in several recent publications, an undamped simple oscillator with a complex attachment that consists of a set of undamped parallel resonators can exhibit unusual energy sharing properties. The conservative set ...
    • Uncertainty and dissipation 

      Carcaterra, A.; Akay, Adnan (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, 2012-09)
      This paper discusses the question of the energy confinement in mechanical structures in the light of the uncertainties affecting the natural frequencies of the system. More precisely, recent studies have shown that energy ...
    • Vibration absorption using non-dissipative complex attachments with impacts and parametric stiffness 

      Roveri, N.; Carcaterra, A.; Akay, A. (Acoustical Society of America, 2009)
      Studies on prototypical systems that consist of a set of complex attachments, coupled to a primary structure characterized by a single degree of freedom system, have shown that vibratory energy can be transported away from ...
