Finite mechanical proxies for a class of reducible continuum systems

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We present the exact finite reduction of a class of nonlinearly perturbed wave equations --typically, a non-linear elastic string-- based on the Amann--Conley--Zehnder paradigm. By solving an inverse eigenvalue problem, we establish an equivalence between the spectral finite description derived from A--C--Z and a discrete mechanical model, a well definite finite spring--mass system. By doing so, we decrypt the abstract information encoded in the finite reduction and obtain a physically sound proxy for the continuous problem.
