In this paper, the influence of the time variable preloading force on the vibration of an archetypal oscillator is investigated. The oscillator is modeled as a slider-string system which is mathematically described with a second order nonlinear differential equation with time variable parameters. An approximate procedure for solving the equation is introduced. It is based on the exact solution of the pure nonlinear equation in the form of the Ateb function. The obtained result gives the vibration amplitude and phase variation of the oscillator depending on the preloading force variation. Based on this result, the procedure for regulation of the preloading force as the function of the required vibration amplitude decrease is developed. It is concluded that the preloading force may be used as a control parameter of the oscillator. View Full-Text
