The core of the second part of the special session will consist of non-linear dynamics and problems related to dynamic stability. This part of will be particularly aimed at non-linear vibration of systems with concentrated and distributed mass, stability problems, post-critical response processes and areas of both Hamiltonian and non-Hamiltonian mechanics. Deterministic as well as random formulations including additive/multiplicative excitation and related self-exciting processes will be given due recognition. Problems regarding stability definition, types and criteria, bifurcations, limit states, limit cycle oscillations, internal resonance within non-linear systems, auto-parametric processes, transition and other unsteady effects, quasi-periodic interaction and analogous themes are also welcome.
It is expected that both the classical fields as well as emerging areas of linear and non-linear dynamics will be fully addressed. Papers of analytic, semi-analytic, numeric or simulation types based on multi-degree of freedom and/or continuous models will be given preference. Experimental investigations representing either independent research or those being conducted as verification, validation or motivation of on-going theoretical studies are encouraged. Papers reporting interesting practical applications in physics and engineering including case studies, interaction with other areas of mechanics and physics are also expected. Particularly welcome are interdisciplinary investigations providing current developments in the field and pilot studies with preliminary results.
