Abstract

The effects of a tuned added mass on the aeroelastic stability of a single degree of freedom bluff body exposed to a steady flow are investigated. The model captures the essential aspects of the behaviour of flexible structures equipped with Tuned Mass Dampers undergoing galloping oscillations. The system exhibits simple as well double Hopf bifurcations, of non-resonant and 1:1 resonant type. Postcritical behaviour of the system in the neighbourhood of the 1:1 resonant type bifurcation is investigated. Employing the Multiple Scale Method, a second order bifurcation equation in the complex amplitude of motion is obtained. Analytical solutions are used to describe the bifurcation scenario in the cases of both undercritical and supercritical aerodynamic behaviour of the bluff body. The effectiveness of the Tuned Mass Damper even in the postcritical range is proved. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
