Chaotic Vibration in Poppet Valve Circuit

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In the previous paper we pointed out that chaotic vibrations can occur in poppet valve circuits due to nonlinearities. The chaotic motions in the poppet valve circuits include (a) period-doubling- type chaos, (b) Lorenz-type chaos and (c) intermittent-type chaos. In this paper, period-doubling- type chaos has been investigated in detail. A lumped parameter model was derived for the system consisting of a poppet valve, a valve chamber, an orifice and a connecting line. A numerical simulation was performed to obtain the power spectrum, bifurcation map and the Liapunov exponent.
