Numerical Continuation of Periodic Orbits for Harmonically Forced Nonlinear Systems


A nonlinear structure will often respond periodically when it is excited with a sinusoidal force. Several methods are available that can compute the periodic response for various drive frequencies, which is analogous to the frequency response function for a linear system. The simplest approach would be to compute a sequence of simulations where the… (More)
