Synchronisation and periodisation of Duffing oscillators coupled by elastic beam: finite element method approach

Agnieszka Chudzik
Results of numerical analysis of a structure witch consists of two identical chaotic oscillators suspended on an elastic element are presented. The numerical calculations have been carried out with the use of the professional ANSYS software (User's Gude ANSYS 10). The findings show that for given conditions of the excitation, the initially uncollerated chaotic oscillations of the structure become periodic and synchronous.
