Abstract

Nonlinearity is ubiquitous in both natural and engineering systems. The resultant dynamics has emerged as a multidisciplinary field that has been very extensively investigated, due partly to the potential occurrence of nonlinear phenomena in all branches of sciences, engineering and medicine. Driving nonlinear systems with external excitations can yield a plethora of intriguing and important phenomena – one of the most prominent being that of resonance. In the presence of additional harmonic or stochastic excitation, two exotic forms of resonance can arise: vibrational resonance or stochastic resonance, respectively. Several promising state-of-the-art technologies that were not covered in Part One of this Theme Issue are discussed here. They include inter alia the improvement of image quality, the design of machines and devices that exert vibrations on materials, the harvesting of energy from various forms of ambient vibration, and control of aerodynamic instabilities. They form an important part of the Theme Issue as a whole, which is dedicated to an overview of vibrational and stochastic resonances in driven nonlinear systems. resonances in driven nonlinear systems.
