On Dissipation-Induced Destabilization and Brake Squeal: A Perspective using Structured Pseudospectra

Abstract

Numerous linearizations of mechanical systems feature non-normal operators. This is particularly the case in follower force systems, gyroscopic systems and models for squealing brakes. In this paper, it is shown that a pseudospectral analysis can illuminate features of these systems including dissipation-induced destabilization and high eigenvalue sensitivity to parameter variation.
