A vibro-impact acoustic black hole for passive damping of flexural beam vibrations

Abstract : Nonlinear flexural vibrations of slender beams holding both an Acoustic Black Hole termination and a contact non-linearity are numerically studied. The Acoustic Black Hole (ABH) effect is a passive vibration mitigation technique, which has shown attractive properties above a given cut-on frequency. In this contribution, a vibro-impact acoustic black hole (VI-ABH) is introduced, the contact nonlinearity being used as a mean to transfer energy from low to high frequencies. A numerical model of a VI-ABH is derived from an Euler-Bernoulli beam. The contact law is handled with a penalization approach, the visco-elastic layer with a Ross-Kerwin-Ungard model and the problem is solved with a modal approach combined with an energy-conserving time integration scheme. Numerical results show that the VI-ABH brings about important modifications, and changes the nature of more traditional black holes, by redistributing all the vibrational energy. It can lead to a strong decrease of the resonance magnitude at low frequencies. Under steady state noise excitation, parametric studies are realised in the cases of a single contact, a grid of contacts and bilateral contacts layouts, in order to find some optimal designs. Transient dynamics is also studied through the analysis of displacement signal envelope and energy decay time. All the numerical results constantly show that the combination the ABH effect and an energy transfer provided by contact nonlinearity leads to very attractive mitigation template including low frequencies.
