Dynamics of the Chaplygin Ball with Variable Parameters
2020, Vol. 16, no. 3, pp. 453-462
This work is devoted to the study of the dynamics of the Chaplygin ball with variable moments of inertia, which occur due to the motion of pairs of internal material points, and internal rotors. The components of the inertia tensor and the gyrostatic momentum are periodic functions. In general, the problem is nonintegrable. In a special case, the relationship of the problem under consideration with the Liouville problem with changing parameters is shown. The case of the Chaplygin ball moving from rest is considered separately. Poincaré maps are constructed, strange attractors are found, and the stages of the origin of strange attractors are shown. Also, the trajectories of contact points are constructed to confirm the chaotic dynamics of the ball. A chart of dynamical regimes is constructed in a separate case for analyzing the nature of strange attractors.

Vibrational Stability of Periodic Solutions of the Liouville Equations
2019, Vol. 15, no. 3, pp. 351-363
The dynamics of a body with a fixed point, variable moments of inertia and internal rotors are considered. A stability analysis of permanent rotations and periodic solutions of the system is carried out. In some simplest cases the stability analysis is reduced to investigating the stability of the zero solution of Hill’s equation. It is shown that by periodically changing the moments of inertia it is possible to stabilize unstable permanent rotations of the system. In addition, stable dynamical regimes can lose stability due to a parametric resonance. It is shown that, as the oscillation frequency of the moments of inertia increases, the dynamics of the system becomes close to an integrable one.
