Abstract

An experimental investigation was performed to determine the dynamics of an inverted, impacting spherical pendulum with large deflection and vertical parametric forcing. The pendulum system was studied with nine different bob and two different base configurations, for twenty times the natural frequency at shaker powers of 0 to 125 mm-hz. It was found that sustained conical motions did not naturally occur. The spherical pendulum system was analyzed to determine under what conditions the onset of Type I and sustainable Type II responses occurred.
