Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The SI will also be a great opportunity for disseminating recent developments of analytical and numerical techniques and for discussing novel phenomena and behaviors on several aspects of nonlinear dynamics and control. In addition, works related to relevant and current issues, such as epidemiological models, rumor dissemination, and complex systems, are also welcome. 

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit their original research work on the rapidly developing field of Nonlinear Dynamics and Control of System Oscillations and their applications to Engineering and Science.

Therefore, we encourage the submission of practitioners’ latest unpublished work.

Abstract
In this work, we analyzed the nonlinear fractional dynamics in the equations of motion of a bar coupled to support under the effect of a potential described by two equally spaced magnetic poles. We also considered Bouc–Wen damping in the equations of motion. [...] Read more.
In this work, we analyzed the nonlinear fractional dynamics in the equations of motion of a bar coupled to support under the effect of a potential described by two equally spaced magnetic poles. We also considered Bouc–Wen damping in the equations of motion. For external force vibrations, we considered an equation of a non-ideal motor based on the parameters that related the interaction between the oscillation and the excitation source. With such considerations, we explored the influence of the fractional derivative operator parameter on the average power generated by the device and the dynamic behavior to determine the chaotic and periodic regions. We use Bifurcation Diagrams, Test 0–1, Phase Portrait, and Poincaré Maps. As a conclusion, we established a set of parameters for the fractional differential equations to obtain higher average powers and the periodicity windows that corroborate the establishment of energetic orbits for energy harvesting.

The problems of steady, inviscid, isentropic, irrotational supersonic plane flow passing a body with a small thickness ratio was solved by the linearized theory, which is a first approximation at and near the surface but fails at far fields from the body. Such a problem with far fields was solved by W.D. Hayes’ “pseudo-transonic” nonlinear theory in 1954. This far field small disturbance theory is reexamined in this study first by using asymptotic expansion theory. A systematic approach is adopted to obtain the nonlinear Burgers’ equation for supersonic far fields. We also use the similarity method to solve this boundary value problem (BVP) of the inviscid Burgers’ equation and obtain the nonlinear flow patterns, including the jump condition for the shock wave. Secondly, the transonic and hypersonic far field equations were obtained from the supersonic Burgers’ equation by stretching the coordinate in the y direction and considering an expansion of the freestream Mach number in terms of the transonic and hypersonic similarity parameters. The mathematical structures of the far fields of the supersonic, transonic, and hypersonic flows are unified to be the same. The similar far field flow patterns including the shock positions of a parabolic airfoil for the supersonic, transonic, and hypersonic flow regimes are exemplified and discussed. Full article

In the present paper, we consider a nonlinear fractional snap model with respect to a G-Caputo derivative and subject to non-periodic boundary conditions. Some qualitative analysis of the solution, such as existence and uniqueness, are investigated in view of fixed-point theorems. Moreover, the stabilities of Ulam–Hyers and Ulam–Hyers–Rassias criterions are considered and investigated. Some numerical simulations were performed using MATLAB for understanding the theoretical results. All results in this work play an important role in understanding ocean engineering phenomena due to the huge applicability of jerk and snap in seakeeping, ride comfort, and shock response spectrum.
